Details are limited at this point, but scanner traffic indicates tragedy struck early this morning when a woman was killed after a tree crashed down on a Mendocino Coast home.

Around 1:21 a.m. emergency medical personnel and firefighters were dispatched to the 27000 block of Highway 1 between Fort Bragg and Westport​ after a “tree crashed into a house” and struck a woman within causing traumatic injuries. 

Minimal information was offered regarding the scene personnel found upon arrival and the specifics regarding the patient.

By 1:43 a.m. the Incident Commander informed dispatch of a “confirmed 11-44”, meaning the woman had succumbed to her injuries. A Mendocino County Sheriff’s Office Deputy/Coroner was requested to the scene.

We have reached out to MCSO for further information and will update when more becomes available.

I like to think of myself as a reporter for the Average Joe. Journalism has become a craft defined largely by city dwellers on America's coasts. It’s time to take it back. I have been an Emerald Triangle resident since 2006 and this is year ten in Mendocino County. Please, email me at matthewplafever@gmail.com if you know a story that needs to be told.
