TACOMA, Wash. -

High winds damaged or uprooted at least 14 trees Thursday night in Point Defiance Park in Tacoma.

Part of the park is closed Friday for crews to assess the damage and possible safety risks.

The National Weather Service reported winds reached 35 miles per hour, and a meteorologist told The News Tribune they were checking data to determine whether the winds were part of a tornado, microburst or regular thunderstorm.
