SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK - This week's storms didn't bring much snow to the Sierra but it was enough to cause some damage in Sequoia National Park.

Abc30 Insider, Adoline Martinez, shared the photos with us after a tree came crashing down Tuesday afternoon in Lodgepole.

A downed tree in Sequoia National Park came down onto some cars at Lodgepole.


Park officials say the Jeffrey Pine was about 150 feet tall and 38 inches in diameter.

It happened after two days of rain and some snow. The tree fell on four employee cars in the parking lot at the Lodgepole Market.

No injuries were reported.

The park reminds visitors to avoid spending time under dead or partly dead trees or branches.
