A south Spokane neighborhood is cleaning up after Saturday night's winds snapped a tree in half causing it to land on a car parked near 12th and Pittsburg.
A Spokesperson with the City of Spokane says because the tree is not posing a threat to the public and isn't disrupting traffic, they'll wait until Monday when there's a regularly scheduled crew who can deal with it. In the meantime, the neighborhood is doing what they can to help out the man who had his car smashed by this branch.
?It is what it is,? said the car's owner Conor Giorgi. ?I mean, what are you going to do??
Giorgi should be inside watching football, but instead he's dealing with a tree branch that landed on his car around midnight. Giorgi had just walked home from the bar and was getting ready for bed when suddenly...
?My wife heard what she thought was garbage cans,? Giorgi said. ?My neighbor came over and informed me that there's half a tree on my car.?
The rotting maple tree was no match for Saturday's strong winds.
