SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) -

Heavy wind and rain caused a tree to come down on Gordonston Avenue on Wednesday night.

The tree crashed into a brick fence, taking down power lines in the process. The homeowner, Robert Haldeman, witnessed the whole thing.

"I was turned around and I heard what sounded like a clap of thunder, and I said my goodness and I turned and looked at the tree and here comes the tree falling," said Haldeman. "And I watched it fall all the way to the ground, watched it when it hit the live wires and the sparks flew."

Luckily no one was hurt, but the tree did knock out power to the neighborhood.
