Wild winds are blowing through southern California today, but the valley got its big burst of wind Saturday.An old growth eucalyptus tree blew over behind this northeast Fresno home last night.

Cesel Adams says the toppled tree was a super-sized surprise. "Heard this loud crash, went running to the window and saw the whole tree in my backyard. I was expecting to see a limb."

The fallen tree took out a fence and some rain gutters, but it barely missed crashing through the windows and the roof of the house.
