Crews were on the scene trying to get it all cleaned up, and deputies had to direct traffic since the tree was blocking the road.

One man saw the whole thing from his car.

"I've seen trees fall, but never this big," Kwandale Stamps said. He says it's not the first time he's seen something like this along Ellis Street.
