A reader reports just after 1pm:

“No one hurt but the car is obviously a total loss. Tree came down after a gust. The owner of the house with the tree (on city land) said he had been worried about the health of the tree and had contacted the city, but there wasn’t any obvious problem with it. Power is out for about 50 houses in North Cleveland Park/Tenleytown.”
