    NBC 7's Danya Bacchus reports on the damage caused by a 100-foot tree at Quest Condos in Mira Mesa Wednesday, April 30, 2014.

    A 100-foot tree crushed a condo complex in the San Diego-area, just one incident of damage reported from around the county in the midst of days of unusually strong winds.

    Residents of the Quest Condos in Mira Mesa heard a bang and a crash Wednesday when a large tree came toppling down in a gust of wind.

    The owner of the condo crushed by the weight of the tree had apparently left a short time earlier to go to the store.

    Four families were evacuated from their homes. Residents told NBC 7 they were given five minutes to collect their belonging and get out.

    The condo homeowners association is helping provide shelter for those who live in the affected condos in the meantime.

    One official says one woman may need a place to stay for more than a month.
