SAN FRANCISCO—Strong winds invaded the Bay Area on Sunday, February 9, bringing down trees and breaking a window of the Millennium Tower.
At 11:45 a.m. the San Francisco Fire Department alerted the public to avoid Mission and Fremont Street. Due to strong winds, a window on the 41st floor of the Millennium Tower shattered and left debris along the street. Officials reported that nobody was injured during the incident.
According to the San Francisco Department of Building Inspections, the window was partially open, but the wind contributed to it shattering.
