Mysuru: A century-old huge tree near Lakshmi theatre on busy Chamaraja Double road in the city was uprooted on the night of Saturday April 30 due to heavy rain and wind. Though a car was damaged, no casualties were reported.

According to an eyewitness the incident occurred at around 10.30 pm. A cab which was parked in front of Lakshmi theatre was heavily damaged. Fortunately, the driver from Yelwal had gone out for dinner, when the tree came crashing down.

Acting swiftly, the police blocked the road from either side from Basaveshwar circle junction near Mysuru City Corporation to Shantala theatre junction as a precaution to prevent the traffic.  Lumberjacks are pressed into service are cutting the tree and the fallen branches into logs using mechanised woodcutters to clear the busy road for the traffic at the earliest.

As the trees have turned rickety due to their age, such incidents have become common in the city during rain and wind. In Kuvempunagara and Ashokapura two trees were uprooted. However, no damage was reported.
