Use caution when driving due to traffic lights being out and tree limbs falling.

The newspaper says the roof blew off a house in Junction City and hit a transformer. Also, a female walking her dog in Jackson Park has been struck by a fallen tree and may have broken bones, Wilder said.

Firefighters said they initially thought they would need chainsaws to free the woman from under the tree but they weren’t required.
