Tree falls near Booker T. Washington apartments

COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) -

Residents in the Booker T. Washington apartments were startled by a booming sound they described as sounding like thunder and feeling like an earthquake. 

A very large limb separated from a tree along Victory Drive and fell across the lanes leading to Phenix City.

The branch came down very close to the intersection of Veterans Parkway across from the Civic Center.

The road was closed for about an hour as crews removed the obstruction from the road.
