A tree fell across Hwy 101 yesterday around 4:30 p.m. CHP reports that Hwy 101 was closed near Demonstration Forest for a short time as the northbound lanes were blocked by the tree and debris scattered into the southbound lanes. In hour, however, both sides were completely cleared and traffic was moving normally.
