Fallen trees caused traffic to close in both directions on Miramonte Avenue in Mountain View on Sunday night, and damaged a house on Barbara Avenue.
The Mountain View Police Department posted on Twitter around 9 p.m. on May 14 that a large tree had fallen at Miramonte and Barbara avenues.
According to police, dispatchers received the initial call about the fallen tree around 7:40 p.m. and fire crews were dispatched shortly after.
"As crews arrived at the scene, a second and larger tree fell on a home in the 900 block of Barbara Avenue," fire department Public Information Officer Bob Maitland told the Voice in a written statement. "Fire crews checked the scene for injuries and confirmed there were none."
One home in the 900 block of Barbara Avenue was deemed unsafe to occupy, Maitland added. Power in the area was not affected, police said.
As crews worked to clear the fallen trees, both north and southbound traffic on Miramonte Avenue was stopped for several hours. The scene has since been cleared and traffic reopened.
The city does not currently know what caused the trees to tumble, police Public Information Officer Katie Nelson told the Voice.
