NOW: Sunday’s storms topple trees in Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Gusty winds, leaves on a tree, and a moist ground. These are three ingredients to do the trick to bring trees down across Milwaukee’s Bay View neighborhood. Indiana Avenue was one street hit hard by Sunday’s storms. A large tree nearly missed Mike Metcalf by mere inches. It tore up the sidewalk too and caused a minor gas leak. Metcalf says he clearly remembers everything playing out in real time.
