Photos of tree destruction at Central Market’s playground, flooding near Whole Foods

The Memorial Day weekend storms hit homes and businesses hard, including the beloved playscape at Central Market North that is shaded by a number of heritage oak trees. (That store also lost power for several hours, which caused them to have to destroy some dairy and frozen products.)

For a while on Monday, shoppers at Whole Foods Market downtown were stuck when Shoal Creek flooded Lamar Boulevard. Here are some of the photos I found on social media of the chaos and aftermath.
