While the rain was scattered, most of the valley saw heavy winds Sunday, bringing down some trees.

A tree fell right onto a Jeep near Washington Avenue and Valley View Boulevard. Fortunately, no one was inside the vehicle when the tree crashed into it.

Meanwhile, a tree that fellow near Rainbow Boulevard and Alexander Road knocked out Gary Bower's water and sewer.

"I've tried my insurance company. I've tried Metro. Metro passed it onto the fire department," he said. "The fire department passed it on to someone else. I don't know who I'm waiting for now."

The city of Las Vegas eventually came to chainsaw the tree out of the street.

Another tree fell near Tropicana Avenue and Maryland Parkway, crushing a fence and landing in the street.

Uprooted tree out into the street near Tropicana and Maryland Parkway. I think we're gonna need a bigger lens....

While yet another tree fell near Decatur and Charleston Boulevard.

The wind knocked the tree out the only thing holding it is the power lines. .3/6/2016

It wasn't just trees. The wind moved a trampoline into a pool near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Gowan Road.
