LITTLETON, Colo. (KDVR) – Cleanup is underway across the metro line after high winds on Wednesday.
In Littleton, Todd Hatfield’s car was stuck under some fallen trees near Windermere Street and West Ida Avenue.
“About 11 o’clock the power went out, I thought what was going on, I looked outside and there were some fallen trees, I thought, I think my car is under one of them and come out and you know it’s a tree. Hatfield said.
Two large trees and several power poles fell on that street. Some areas around were electrocuted.
There are similar situations on the subway. Many trees and fences were cut down in parts of Westminster and Broomfield.
Neighbors said a strong wind blew through around 9:30 a.m
“Winds of 50 miles per hour, 80 kilometers per hour, I just heard an explosion and went out to see and the fence was blown away,” said Nicolas Rodriguez of Westminster.
A woman in Broomfield went out and found a tree in her yard that had been blown away at the same time. “I was on my way to work and I heard a big bang and the tree was in the middle of the road,” she said.
