FAIRFAX, Calif. (AP) — Northern California residents are cleaning up after a big storm that sent a massive oak tree toppling onto a Marin County home.
The massive oak tree briefly trapped three people in the house in Fairfax on Tuesday evening, but they were able to get out uninjured.
Neighbors said the falling tree sounded like a jet plane or an earthquake. It also took out power lines and crushed a car.
Authorities say another tree fell on the roof of a home in Larkspur a few miles away. The residents were home at the time but were also uninjured.
Strong winds and heavy rains across the San Francisco Bay area left roads flooded and led to the cancellation of more than 100 flights at San Francisco International Airport.
