A car was hit by a large downed tree branch in the southbound lane of Dryden Avenue just north of Euclid Avenue. The female driver was not injured and was able to get out of her car on her own. She had stopped because she saw a tree taking down power lines in front of her on Dryden Avenue when a large tree branch then fell on her own car.

Power lines were also down a little south of the downed tree branch closer to Euclid Avenue.
