Courtesy Toby Frey at Best Vacuum Of Burien comes these photos, showing fallen scaffolding – likely caused by high winds – at the Pillar Properties construction site near Burien Town Square on Tuesday morning, Dec. 20.

“There are no injuries and only minor damage beyond the scaffolding itself,” Peter Davidson of Compass General Construction said. “We expect it to all be cleaned up by tomorrow.”

The National Weather Service issued a Wind Advisory early Tuesday morning, warning of winds between 20–35 MPH, with gusts of 40-50 MPH.
