First responders are answering multiple calls for downed trees across San Luis Obispo County.

Winds whipped up late Tuesday afternoon, as another storm system rolled into the Central Coast.

In Los Osos, several trees in a grove of eucalyptus trees came down in front of a house on Skyline Drive, crushing the resident's car.

“I just got up from a nap on the other side of the house and had the trees fallen a little bit for the back and I’ve been still in the bedroom I could be dead now... I feel very lucky that he got the car and the yard and just a little bit of the porch,“ said Celia Alfirevic, the homeowner at 345 Skyline Dr.

Alfirevic says she and her husband are too scared to sleep in their house tonight, so they are staying down the street.

Elsewhere in Los Osos, downed trees were reported on 3rd Street, 17th Street, and Tierra Drive.

In San Luis Obispo, police and fire crews responded to a large tree that fell onto a parked car in the 200 block of North Chorro Street.
