A tree on the northeast corner of the intersection of Trott Avenue and Ninth Avenue Southwest in Willmar was one casualty Friday morning of the winter storm that blew through west central Minnesota. Winds were the major problem: blowing snow reduced visibilitly and snarled travel, and power outages were widespread.  (Briana Sanchez / Tribune)

City of Willmar Public Works employees cut branches off a tree that fell around 10 a.m. Friday on the northeast corner of the intersection of Trott Avenue and Ninth Avenue Southwest. Thousands in the region are without power this morning. Winds have whipped power lines together causing outages, and downed tree branches also have caused outages.
