Giant tree branch down in Dubuque blocks Bluff Street

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- A rotted tree branch blocked traffic on Monday evening.

The limb fell on Bluff Street between Fifth and Sixth streets.

One Dubuque police officer said a witness observed it simply fall a little before 7 p.m. No lightning or wind was involved.

Officers pointed out a black, rotted weak spot in the limb where it cracked.

The felled limb injured nobody and didn't damage any cars or other property.

At approximately 7:20 p.m., the Parks Department arrived on the scene and cut down the limb.
