It was a phone call a Portage homeowner expected to get today, with the high winds we're experiencing.


A tree in the back yard of his home on 1st Street Northwest was blown over, landing on a power line in the back alley.


Portage Firefighters and Manitoba Hydro crews were called out immediately, and 7th Avenue between Tupper and 1st Streets was closed while they dealt with the matter.


It re-opened just before 2:30.


No one was injured.
