There have been several reports of trees down throughout the area. In the Avondale neighborhood, WGN News was at the scene of a tree on the porch in the 3200 block of North Albany Avenue.

“It sounded like a really huge rumble like someone stomped on our house, stomped through our house, and then there was a shake like a big earthquake,” Luca Aceves said.

Due to the commotion, Aceves had to wake up his mother.

“It was a good nap until it wasn’t,” Ellen Aceves said.

Near Bell and Addison, gusts around 60 miles per hour were able to topple a tree that came down on a few vehicles.
