Wind Storm, October 22, 2000
Dateline: October 22, 2000
By Ann Zeise
Wind Storm Blasts its Way Through
Several people were injured when trees fell upon them. Power
lines were knocked down and several sections of the city were
without power at various times throughout the day. Some new construction
at the Pac Bell station was blown over. Most citizens spent Sunday
cleaning up debris or helping neighbors.
A tree on Yosemite Dr. fell on this sports car. It appeared
later on that the car had some dents, but was drivable.
Long fence along Jacklin Rd. east of I-680 blew down from
one end to the other.
Newly constructed walls at the PacBell substation blew over.

Community Center, narrowly missing a picnic table and a utility
A large tree in Ben Rodgers Park fell on the Grand Teton home
of Fred and Ann Zeise. Ann is your Go Milpitas guide for this
website. The new roof has a dent along the edge, and so far the
fence has stayed upright. Hopefully, the City will give the wood
to the Zeises for winter firewood.
