High winds take toll on trees


This weekend was not a good time for trees, due to high winds that gusted from 40 to 50 mph at times and downed a number of them in Surry County, especially overnight Saturday. One casualty is pictured Sunday morning in front of Skyline Memory Gardens south of Mount Airy. County Emergency Services Director John Shelton said the winds, coupled with wet ground from recent rains, caused some trees to break off at the base, with scattered power outages resulting.
