Storm Knocks Down Two Trees At Capitol

Storms that blew through Michigan on Sunday took out two trees at the state Capitol building.

The state's Christmas tree remains standing, however - and the building was not damaged.

But the trees that fell - in the north-east corner of the grounds near the intersection of Capitol and Ottawa - were still substantial and had likely been growing for a long time.

The Capitol is home to many trees - many of them decades old.

Still, the winds were strong enough to completely uproot them and knock out branches from other trees surrounding the building.

Crews were on the scene quickly, blocking off the scene with tape - and forcing police to shut down part of the road.
