“The Olde Town Christmas tree was lost in the wind storm,” police said on Twitter.

“I was over there waiting for a friend, and there was a crack and all of a sudden it came down,” said one man.

The tree was set up on Nov. 27 which included a large, public festival. The tree sat in the square surrounded by a Christmas market. CBS4’s Rick Sallinger reports some of the booths were also blown over.
