Fire Rescue is on the scene of several downed trees and power lines in the area of Larkin Road and Alloway Ave, where witnesses say a possible tornado struck the area. Trees damaged several roof tops at least one vehicle, and there are unconfirmed reports that a woman may have been injured after she was struck by a tree branch.

    Yep, that area is where is looked like some straightline winds came down as the storm collapsed. With the damage you are describing, I would guess 55-65mph winds. Winds aloft are only 20-25 kts, but the storm could have caused much higher winds.
