High wind operations ended at 6:30 p.m. The entire square block of Davis, Church, Sherman and Benson that had been blocked is reopened to pedestrians and automobiles. Access to the upper level of the parking garage at 807 Davis Street has been blocked.
Trees were affected citywide. As of 5:50 p.m. there were 20 Evanston sites with trees that were affected by the high wind. However, reports slowed down after 5 p.m. Crews are out at this time and a crew will begin a shift at 7 p.m. to handle any additional calls that come in this evening. Tomorrow morning, all sites will be revisited to continue clean-up and address any additional calls.
