High winds and stormy weather ushered in a cold front this afternoon, downing trees, damaging vehicles, and creating general havoc in the borough. Here are some photos of the event:

The aftermath:

 Siding at North Second and Avenue H

 The siding blew off the side of this house on North Second.

 A Good Samaritan gathered nails from the road to prevent flat tires.

 This lamp at the Historical Society was hit by a piece of flying debris.

 A vehicle on the 500 block of Manor didn't fare too well.

 It was hit when the high winds snapped off this tree.

 A trampoline blew onto school grounds near North 9th & Purples Lane.

 Broken bench on Kinderhook

 A fallen tree on the 1000 block of Ironville Pike

 Underneath the tree was this truck.

Awesome pictures!!!! Thank God no one was hurt (that we heard of). Received 2 tornado warnings on smart phone telling you to go inside and shelter. The cloud wall was the warning.

The tree at the Clock Museum was downed onto Poplar street. It didn't blow away. Crews were there to remove it very quickly.
