SAN DIEGO -- Six cars were crushed by a large tree in Balboa Park as a result of Saturday's powerful storm, said officials.

High winds paired with heavy rain made for dangerous conditions across San Diego County.

Crews with  the City of San Diego worked  through the afternoon and the night to remove the large eucalyptus tree.

Cleanup efforts continued Sunday.

Hung Cao, the owner of one of the crushed cars was hopeful his car was not damaged.

"I saw the tree from afar and I thought it missed my car," said Cao. "This is actually my wife's car and she is out of town so she won't be happy."

Cao and the other car owners were allowed to retrieve their things.

Although cars were damaged, no one was hurt in the incident.
