Eveleth, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - Fridays's heavy wind took siding off of houses, blew garbage and recycling bins across neighborhoods, and took down trees across the Northland including this one in Eveleth, which fell near the high school football field.

In Birchdale, MN a cell phone tower buckled from the high winds in that area.

Gusts surpassing 50 MPH were reported as another winter blast prepares to hit the Northland.
