Tree falls on grocery store in SLO, damages building

January 10, 2023


As strong winds and heavy rainfall flooded city streets, a tall tree uprooted and toppled onto the Smart & Final store in San Luis Obispo on Monday.

The large eucalyptus tree was growing in the San Luis Creek area when it uprooted and fell on the top corner of the grocery store roof. The tree left a hole in the roof and multiple leaks into the building.

Grocery store staff taped off part of the store and closed the restrooms. The store remains open.

Let’s see what the health department says about this when mold starts growing…

Well aren’t you just a ray of sunshine!

Yeah because they are just going to leave the water damage and not file an insurance claim to fix it… You clearly have never owned a business or real estate before.
