BY REBECCA BENNETT — This weekend’s high winds, which were reported in the 50 to 60 mile per hour range, didn’t leave Hyattsville unscathed.  Hyattsville Life & Times Editor Mark Goodson was this tree down at 41st Avenue and Kennedy Street on Sunday morning.  There was also a tree down at Jefferson Street and 39th Avenue, he said.

Hyattsville did escape extensive power outages.  Pepco reported just a few customers without power in the City of Hyattsville.  However, just a couple of miles away in the Fort Totten neighborhood, Pepco reported more than 1,300 customers without power Saturday evening.
