A 100 foot tall tree caused a lot of damage when it toppled onto the property of a San Mateo family Wednesday morning.

It happened around 2 a.m., when the 60-year-old pine tree slammed onto their garage.

The cars inside were damaged, but no one was hurt. Officials say the tree had root rot from the recent rains and just enough wind to knock it down.
