ORANGE PARK, Fla. – A massive tree toppled over in an Orange Park neighborhood Tuesday morning.

The tree knocked down power lines and blocked the roadway. 

According to a viewer, the tree came down on Woodland Drive just after 7 a.m.

Kathy Richardson, spokesperson for Clay Electric, encouraged residents to avoid the area while crews assessed the damage. They ended up replacing the poll.
