A huge tree fell on top of a home, hit a gas line and blocked an entire street in northeast Atlanta all morning.

Channel 2′s Tyisha Fernandes was on Iverson Street where she spoke to the homeowner, who said he couldn’t believe the noise it made.

The tree hit one house and knocked out the gas line.

Neighbor watched as Georgia Power crews, Atlanta Gas Light and firefighters work to get the tree out of the way safely.
