Eight people were displaced when a tree fell onto homes in Atascadero Wednesday morning.
The tree fell onto four one-story rental homes along the 8000 block of Amapoa Ave. Part of the tree also landed on top of a truck.
One resident tells KSBY she had just left her bedroom when the approximately 50- to 60-foot pine tree came crashing down. Another says she heard the noise and moved before the tree fell onto the roof above her bed.
No one was injured.
The Red Cross was on scene as of 10:30 a.m. working to help those displaced. PG&E was also on scene.
The landlord tells KSBY the units will need to be rebuilt and expects the process to take at least six months.
Atascadero Fire Department took to Twitter Wednesday morning to warn people about the risks of falling trees.
This storm is not only bringing rain, but heavy and sustained winds that stress trees in the already saturated soil. Be aware and on the lookout for downed trees and powerlines. Everyone stay safe out there today! #atascaderofire #stormwatch #stormdays #atascadero pic.twitter.com/b88IvnXaM1
