CHICO, Calif. - A huge tree came down on Notre Dame Blvd. and Fremont street in Chico, right in front of "The Meadows" apartment complex. Tree removal crews were out there Sunday morning cleaning up the scene.

The crews said the tree toppled down around 7 a.m. and said it likely happened due to the strong gusts of wind.

One car was severely damaged because of the tree, owned by a college student who was home to visit his parents. 

The owner of the car, Davia Arriaza said, "There's no fixing it, the roof is dented, I think we're just gonna get rid of it, scrap it, and find something else."

Meanwhile, in Tehama County, a family is lucky to have escaped injury when strong winds caused a tree to fall on top of their home. The Ontiveros family lives off Corning road, west of Corning.

The family was asleep when the tree fell at about 11 a.m. They had only rented the home for three months, and now they're having to look for a new place to live, the family said.

The winds are expected to pick back up again this week.
