Falling tree leads 'pollen bomb' in Tennessee. Jeannette Reyes reports during Action News Mornings on April 10, 2019.

Video shows a falling river birch tree erupting into a plume of pollen.

Timberline Outdoors called it a "pollen bomb."

"If you think your allergies are trying to kill you, you'd be right!" Timberline Outdoors wrote on Facebook.

Last year, a backhoe loader struck a tree creating a "pollen bomb" in Millville, New Jersey.
