Winds knock over flagpole in Center City

Thursday, January 31, 2013

Spectators gathered to check out the aftermath of the storm that blew through Philadelphia overnight

Strong winds nearly bent a flagpole in half in Center City.

The flag was standing on top of a building at the intersection of 6th and Chestnut streets, but it's now dangling over the street below.

The weight of the flagpole, over 1,000 pounds, and the high winds have made it difficult to remove the flagpole.

No injuries have been reported.
