Guilford downed tree

The Guilford Police Department posted a photo of a massive tree down across Catullo Drive on Thursday.

GUILFORD, CT (WFSB) - Wind is being blamed for bringing a tree down onto a road in Guilford Thursday.

The Guilford Police Department posted a photo of the tree down across Catullo Drive.

It said the tree narrowly missed a landscaper.

The landscaper was not hurt and crews made quick work of the tree.

"High winds + saturated ground + trees full of leaves = blocked roads + power lines down," police said.

They said the Department of Public Works and Department of Transportation would be working throughout the day to keep the roads clear.

Police reminded people that if any wires are down, utility crews need to be involved to clear them.

"Please do not approach any wires if they are down as it is unclear if they are live," they said.
