High winds downed a Eucalyputs tree on North Beverly Drive. The tree landed on the home of actors Eric Dane and Rebecca Gayheart, best known for their roles on Grey’s Anatomy and Scream 2. The accident occurred during Wednesdays wind storm.

Neighbor Susan Smith said the “very pregnant” lady of the house was upstairs putting her baby to sleep when the tree went down. “We all came running out of the house,” she said.

“Thank God we’re all okay. We know there are a lot of live wires out there,” Smith said.

Firefighters quickly arrived to the scene to shut off power in case any wires were compromised by the high winds. Department of Water and Power officials are still assessing the damage to the wires and residents are being kept from the area.

“These winds that came today were unbelievable,” Smith said.

No injuries were reported.

Last September, a row of eucalyptus trees on Irivine Avenue was removed after a falling tree crushed the car driven by Haeyoon Miller. Ms. Miller was killed in the accident.
