Even More Insane Damage The High Winds Caused In Chicago Friday

By Rachel Cromidas in News on Feb 20, 2016 4:58PM

Freakishly high winds wreaked havoc on the Chicago area Friday afternoon, causing widespread power outages, delaying CTA trains, raining glass down on the Loop from damaged skyscrapers, and almost knocking a woman off her feet.

We've rounded-up even more examples of Friday's "windsanity," from angry CTA commuters to stranded construction workers:

1) A traffic light fell on a man at the corner of 35th and Indiana streets in Bronzeville.

2) Some CTA riders, fed up with massive delays, exited their Blue Line train and walked along the tracks to the nearest station:

3) Winds knocked over a gas station in the 'burbs:

4) This tree took out a Jeep in Bucktown:

5) Construction workers got trapped in the under-construction officer tower at 150 N. Riverside for hours.

6) A puppy ran away from his Jefferson Park home after the wind knocked down the fence around the home.

7) These Divvy bikes almost blew away from their bikeshare station:

8) The Willis Tower appeared to be swaying in the wind!

It's so #windy the doors are swaying #searstower #windycity
