Large tree topples power lines, ruptures water main in Winnetka, California


High winds toppled a massive tree in a Winnetka neighborhood on Wednesday that brought down power lines and ruptured a water main.  

Crews with the Los Angeles Fire Department received calls about the incident, located in the 19700 block of Roscoe Boulevard, at around 3:50 p.m. 

Aerial footage from Sky5 showed the tree landing on the back of a red pickup truck and narrowly missing several other parked cars. There was also running into the street from the broken water main. 

The tree, which will need to be cleared by public works crews, has the street completely blocked.  

Strong Santa Ana winds with gusts between 60-75 miles per hour are expected through Thursday, increasing the chances of downed trees and branches, power outages and dangerous driving conditions, the National Weather Service reports.
