CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A large tree fell and knocked out the power to several homes in the Landsdowne neighborhood in southeast Charlotte.

The incident happened around 12pm on Lansing Drive on Sunday.  Homeowner Rob Joyner said a tree fell in the backyard and knocked the high tension lines and service lines off the house.

Several other homes in the area are also without power due to the fallen tree.  Duke Energy arrived Monday afternoon and is actively working to restore power.
