High winds leave visible damage in Northwest Philadelphia

Gusty winds whipping through Northwest Philadelphia left at least one noticeable mark on Thursday morning.

Jerry Roy, who works at the Sunoco station at the corner of Wissahickon Ave. and Rittenhouse St. said a tree was knocked down around 6 a.m. at which point it fell through the tall gas-prices sign outside.

“It split it right down the middle,” said Roy a few hours later. “Nobody was hurt.”

Roy said that workers from the Fairmount Park Commission were at the site around 10 a.m. NBC10 has more details about the weather that caused the tree to fall.
