AUGUSTA, Ga.---No one was injured, but three homes were heavily damaged when a tree fell on Crawford Avenue, near Harrisburg.

The homes were destroyed, and one person was in one of the homes when it happened.

There's no word yet on what caused the tree to fall.

A tree fell on Boy Scout Road last week, knocking out power to a school and residences.

News 12 Chief Meteorologist Bob Smith advises that while you can tell when a pine tree is dying due to the needles turning brown, oak trees like the one that fell today can be completely dead and still have full foliage. Bob recommends that if you have oak trees in your hard, you should have them checked by an expert at least every five or six years.
