BATON ROUGE, LA (FOX44)  -- Tropical Storm Lee pushed nearly six inches of rain in Baton Rouge within a 24 hour period. All that moisture has made the the ground very soft. That's one of the reasons downed trees are being reported all across the area.

A huge tree went down just after 1:30 on the 200 block of East Johnson, close to LSU. It feel right on top of two cars. They are both total losses.

Baton Rouge Police tell NBC33 news no one was inside when the tree came down.
