100-Year-Old Tree Falls, Crushes Garage in Woodland Hills

A century old tree toppled over and crushed a garage in Woodland Hills Friday.

The 40 foot high oak tree, which had been weakened by recent extreme weather, fell during a break in the storm, Los Angeles Fire Department said.

With land currently being battered by winds and saturated by rainfall, LAFD said it is a timely reminder to make sure trees on property are checked to make sure they are not a safety hazard.
