Tree falls on road in Crozet

CROZET, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- A powerful storm caused a tree fall on Saint George Avenue in Crozet on Thursday.

The tree fell on a power line, blocking the road for residents and knocked out the power.

The storm also knocked out power throughout the majority of the town.

Betty Rauch, a Crozet resident for about 50 years, said the storm lasted for about 20 minutes and she has never seen a storm like this rip through the area.

"I have been here for 50 years and I own the cleaners in town for almost 30 years and it was just nothing like I have ever seen before," said Rauch. "That was unbelievable. Thank goodness none of these trees fell on anyone's house."

Dominion is working to remove the tree and restore power in the area.
