the trees did not suffer any damage and the same thing happened last year. maybe termites are to blame.

That was unusual. We live only a couple miles from there and the wind never seemed that bad. Have the meteorologists come up with any explanation of why 3 power poles were taken out? Could there have been a downdraft or microburst?
