Massive oak uprooted along Woodside Road Thursday night

Road was blocked and power was out for hours

Power was out in Woodside Thursday night, Feb. 18, after a massive oak tree uprooted and fell on power lines along Woodside Road near Albion Avenue about 8:15 p.m., closing the road for hours.

Responders from the Woodside Fire Protection District, the San Mateo County Sheriff's Office, Pacific Gas & Electric and Caltrans, which is responsible for Woodside Road, worked to make sure there were no live wires down and to remove the tree from where it rested on utility wires.

PG&E said about 400 people lost power, but all were restored by 5 a.m.
