At around 9:30 a.m. Monday, a woman says she was in her home on Campus Commons Drive when she heard a loud crack followed by a tree limb crashing through the ceiling of her bedroom, smashing a window. A large eucalyptus tree in her front yard split in half onto her home. It had also ripped off part of the roof and was blocking the front door.

The woman was not injured. Firefighters say the woman is still inhabitable.

A tree removal service has been called to come remove the tree.

A student in Patterson was hit by a falling tree. The 17-year-old suffered minor injuries and was taken to the hospital as a precaution, according to Patterson Joint Unified School District. Students in the area of the tree have been moved to other classrooms.
