RATHDRUM, Idaho -- Crews are cleaning-up downed trees after a storm ripped through Rathdrum, Idaho Wednesday.

The Weather Service says there was no tornado but fierce straight-line winds did all the damage. The winds were between 70 and 80 miles-per-hour and uprooted almost 40 trees.

A giant pine tree feel over a trampoline and another tree crunched a camper and a barn.

Some of the trees are bent so far over that they're only a gust of wind away from falling.

People in the area are now getting their power turned back on and dealing with insurance companies.
