SACRAMENTO–

Strong winds and rain toppled a tree in downtown Sacramento Sunday morning, blocking two lanes.

The tree fell at 14th and L Streets.

It was not known when exactly the tree would be cleared from the roadway.

Sunday’s intense weather also knocked out power for thousands in Sacramento, mostly in the Arden-Arcade area. SMUD estimated power for most, if not all, would be restored by noon.

The National Weather Service issues an urban and small stream flood advisory for the region, expected to expire shortly before 1 p.m.
