Strong Winds Topple Christmas Tree in Downtown McKinney

Strong winds that blew across North Texas on Thursday sent the large Christmas tree in downtown McKinney crashing to the ground.

The tree is a 34-foot tall Blue Spruce that was placed in the city's square.

City workers quickly moved in and chopped up the tree and hauled it off.

The McKinney Rotary Club's 19th Annual Christmas Parade of Lights started at 7 p.m. Thursday.
