Large Fallen Tree Narrowly Misses Sacramento Home

Powerful winds knocked down trees and caused power outages across Sacramento, California, on Sunday, January 8.

Footage by John Criscitello shows a large tree down at his home in Sacramento. “Well that was a bumpy night,” Criscitello wrote on Instagram. “A huge 50ft tall tree came down and narrowly missed our window fully blocking the door and smashing through the roof of the building behind us.”

The National Weather Service said a storm brought gusts up to 60 mph over the Southern Sacramento Valley. Local journalists reported power outages in parts of Sacramento overnight. Credit: John Criscitello via Storyful
