A large tree has shut down a road in the city of Roswell on Saturday.

Roswell police say the tree toppled on to Azalea Drive and Atlanta Street. This intersection is where Azalea turns into Riverside Road.

The tree fell onto power lines, knocking out electricity to homes in the neighborhood. Georgia Power expects to have service restored by 4:30 p.m. according to their website.

Police say the roadway will be closed for at least another five hours as Georgia Power crews work to clean up the mess.
