A storm with high winds severely damages a tree in Gheorghe Trifon's backyard at 349 S. Gilbert Ave. in La Grange. Trifon (right) talks about the storm with his friend George Beshilas. The tree fell on his garage and is resting on power lines at noon on Tuesday, June 25, 2013. This tripped a fuse that took out power for several blocks the night before. Another neighbor, Kelli Teegan, said that the power went out around 5 p.m. at her house at 410 S. Peck Ave. Neighbors across the street have run an extension cord to her house to keep her refrigerator running. (Bill Ackerman photo)
