JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A huge tree in an Arlington neighborhood fell during the early morning hours, causing power to go out in more than 40 homes and causing the street to blocked for hours.
Residents living along Domas Drive say it was only a matter of time before the tree on city right of way came crashing down in their neighborhood.
"It came down at three in the morning and the transformer started sparking and everything," said Al Quinney who lives just down the street. "It made a real splatter noise."
It knocked out power to 46 homes for about four hours. One lady who lived across the street from the tree but did not want to be identified, said her neighbor next door had complained to the city about the tree and it was obviously a sick tree.
