MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – A tree fell onto a homeowner’s garage in Richfield, Minn. Saturday afternoon due to strong winds.

The house was located around 67th Street and Clinton Avenue South.

Power lines were also downed in that area, knocking out power.

“[The tree] Took out the west side on the roof and we don’t know about the vehicles in there. We can’t get in there, police won’t let us in there right now. It’s all boarded off so we can’t get no place,” homeowner John Ahlstrend said.

Ahlstrend said it sounded like thunder before the tree came down.
