Torn Tree, As Fierce As The Wind Blows






A large eucalyptus tree toppled during high winds Monday and fell onto house near Chatsworth and Louise, injuring one person. Full story at, and aerial photo at left lifted from, KTLA.com.










Updated, 10:58pm:
I'm pretty sure a tree this big makes a sound when it falls, whether or not anyone is around to hear it.

  1. I live in Knollwood and I'm glad I removed a tree that became a threat to our house. The wind really whips over those hills.

  2. At least this tree was still green; there are dead pines (40+ feet tall) on Chatsworth in the parking strips that are tragedies waiting to happen - be nice if CD 12 was a little more proactive about them.
