Wind gusts are expected to build to 45 mph and then taper off through the evening hours. They've already sent several trees toppling in our area.
Grand Haven resident Chris Streng said he was home with the flu bug Monday afternoon when the wind pushed a giant tree down at his 509 Lafayette home.
The tree "knocked out (the garage) and crashed the fence," he wrote, adding that no one was injured. He saw it all from his back slider door.
The wind advisory is in effect until 8 p.m. Monday.
Waves on the lake are expected to be rise up to 5 feet through tonight, and a gale warning is in effect until 8 a.m. Tuesday. The wind will also make travel difficult for high-profile vehicles.
