Update: Vandals or Wind?


(Hamilton)---Hamilton City leaders tell WMOH Radio they cannot be sure it was vandals that caused damage to three trees that were found toppled on the walkway to the RiversEdge Amphitheatre on Monday.

A landscape worker told WMOH earlier in the day he believed the trees were brought down by vandals.
