Strong winds howled across the Bay State Friday night, toppling trees and streetlights in several communities.
The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory Friday night into Saturday morning, a period in which wind gusts reached up to 51-53 miles per hour in places like Boston, Lawrence and Worcester.
The gusts knocked down more than a dozen trees and utility poles across the eastern part of the state, according to the NWS damage report.
In Boston, gusts knocked down a streetlight on Truman Parkway. In Worcester, knocked trees and wires forced a closure on West Princeton Road, and another fallen tree collapsed onto a home and several cars on Onset Street.
The National Weather Service issued a wind advisory for most counties, which will expire at 7 a.m. A gale warning was also in effect for coastal communities on the North Shore and Cape Cod, including Ipswich, Provincetown, Nantucket and Chatham.
