Sunday afternoon - between about 4:35 - 4:45 p.m., an isolated but strong storm brought heavy winds to parts of Lewisville and created minor damage in several locations that we are aware of. It is also reported that there were some power outages.

- In Old Town near Cowan and Main Street, next to the LISD student services building, the winds snapped two utility poles and left communication cables lying in the street.

- At the intersection of Main and Surf/Summit, numerous tree limbs were snapped and a DCTA bus stop was apparently damaged. Trees at First United Methodist Church were damaged, as were trees at Taco Bell.

- Fences were blown down near North Valley Parkway between Old Orchard and College.

- Trees were knocked down near Garden Ridge and FM 407.
