The ground saturation from rainfall this weekend has led to a dangerous situation: big trees toppling over.

A dead tree came tumbling down Sunday night in the Museum District.

The tree suddenly uprooted and fell over onto the roadway in the 1800 block of Binz. Luckily, no one was in its path.

Nearby residents say crews have been working to remove a lot of trees in nearby Hermann Park.

Traffic on Binz was down to one lane Sunday while crews worked to remove the big tree.
