Lisa Ray comes out of her house on Behrends Avenue Wednesday morning to find her way blocked by a large mountain ash tree that came down during an early morning storm. The tree missed the house but damaged the front fence. Periods of heavy rain and gusts to 45 mph are expected to continue through the day.

The storm that whipped through Juneau Tuesday night and early Wednesday morning produced gusts of up to 55 mph, according to a National Weather Service meteorologist.

The Juneau forecast office received one report of a downed tree, at 10th Street and Glacier Highway, meteorologist Geri Swanson said. Another tree came down on Behrends Avenue.

Winds hit their 55 mph peak at 1 a.m. at the Juneau International Airport, she said. On the south end of Douglas, winds got as high as 44 mph at 3 a.m. The airport reported 1.55 inches of rain.

Although it was originally reported storms would continue throughout Wednesday, Juneau got light rain showers instead.

The hardest hit by the storm was Yakutat, which received 4.17 inches of rain, Swanson said.
