DITMAS PARK – The wet and windy weather is not going easy on the old trees in Victorian Flatbush.

One century-old London Plane tree on DeKoven Court cracked and fell this afternoon, damaging a car and ripping the gutters of the roof over the front porch.

Up closer by the park, an old maple also cracked and lost a few large branches on Argyle between Cortelyou and Beverley.

“It was sheer luck that no-one was injured”, homeowner David Ho said. His children were out minutes earlier playing in the puddle underneath the tree.

Be careful out there.
