    The one house (which you can barely see for the trees is Jon's mom's next door neighbor). They couldn't even get out of their front door. We helped them tarp their roof and then they packed up and left.

    Nope. Just horrible wind damage. Interestingly enough...it was all evergreen trees which sustained the most damage...a sad testament to their shallow roots and heavy foliage.

    Wow. That is really scary stuff. High winds will bring down big trees. That's exactly what happened to the two maples I mentioned in the other thread.

    It doesn't need to be a tornado or a hurricane. High winds are dangerous in and of themselves.
