CHICAGO (Sun-Times Media Wire) -

A window fell from a Magnificent Mile store Thursday night, shattering on Michigan Avenue and shutting down several lanes of traffic.

The window pane fell from a third-floor Water Tower Place department store at 835 N. Michigan Ave. about 8:30 p.m., as winds gusted to more than 50 mph, according to police News Affairs Officer Hector Alfaro and the National Weather Service.

No one was hurt. Traffic was shut down into Friday morning for several blocks on Michigan Avenue, Alfaro said.

Southbound lanes had reopened but northbound lanes remained closed at 5 a.m. as workers cleared the debris, police said.
