Straight line winds caused damage and debris to cover West Allis overnight Tuesday into Wednesday, Aug. 11.
On 87th Street, just off of Becher, a large tree was partially on top of a home, and its roots stood almost 5 feet 6 inches tall.
West Allis Public Works says there are at least 20 trees down just like it in the area, and they're expecting that number to go up as they continue to survey the city.
A few blocks down, on 83rd Street, there's a tree similar in size that brushed an apartment building.
West Allis Public Works said it will have five bucket trucks out Wednesday afternoon clearing debris.
The city has multiple departments helping with the cleanup efforts.
