* Impacts... winds of this strength can break branches off of
trees... topple weakened trees and produce local power outages.
Tree-related and power-related impacts may be greater than usual
for winds of this magnitude given the less common northwesterly

and trash cans. Be ready for the possibility of interruptions to
power service this evening.
