Mount Prospect police blocked access to northwestbound Rand Road from Schoenbeck Road for over three hours on Monday morning after high winds brought down a tree branch that dropped primary power lines (SOURCE: Reader photo).

Sunday’s National Weather Service Wind Advisory was canceled early, but a new Wind Advisory activated Monday morning was associated with winds with some punch.

Winds brought a tree branch down on power lines, which closed Rand Road in both directions for over three hours from about 9:00 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. Route 12 was blocked between Euclid Avenue and Camp McDonald Road.

A tree branch fell and crashed through a windshield of a vehicle parked on East Canterbury in Arlington Heights Monday morning.

A downed power line down across Kenicott Avenue north of Dundee Road cut power to several businesses on the north side of Arlington Heights.

Across the northwest suburbs, several stops signs were blown down, a traffic light ripped from its standard, and several tree branches blocked roadways.

About 1:18 p.m. Monday police received a report that a light pole was blown down on two cars in the La Quinta parking lot at 1900 Oakton in Elk Grove Village.

Downed lines were a recurring problem in the roadway at Algonquin Road and Meacham Road between Schaumburg and Rolling Meadows. Lines were dragged off the road Monday morning, but were reported back on the roadway Monday afternoon.

Officially winds at O’Hare International Airport were highest during the 11 o’clock hour — sustained at 31.1 mph and gusting to 43.7 mph. As of 6:51 p.m. winds are backing down under 20 mph — recorded at 18.4 mph.
