Last week's high winds are but a memory for most Glendale residents. Unfortunately, for people like Mike Avetisyan, the damage is still very much on his mind. A falling tree crushed his white Toyota Corolla during the storm, and as of midday Monday, the tree had not been removed. Avetisyan said his insurance will not cover the loss of his car, and getting around has become a hardship. City crews removed enough of the tree to clear the road on the 400 block of Fisher Street, where the tree fell.
