Overnight storms leave damage behind

July 28, 2009 (CHICAGO) Strong winds snapped tree branches in half in Elgin, and large trees came crashing down onto several homes.

Emergency crews were called to the scene.

One resident said he heard the wind kick up and then a loud crash.

"I wasn't really aware of the storm for more than about five minutes, until the strong winds came, and I went to the computer to check the weather. And [a tree] came down right on the garage," Gino Velazquez said.

One vehicle ended up on top of a large fallen tree. No one was hurt.
