Photos: Eucalyptus splits and falls onto Funston near Clement; damages truck

Late this afternoon, a part of a eucalyptus tree in the Park Presidio greenbelt fell across the 200 block of Funston near Clement.

Reader Ronald H. sent us the above photo that his wife took while picking up their son from nearby Sutro Elementary School.

We haven’t been on scene so we don’t know if there was any damage to parked vehicles on the west side of Funston (but probably likely).

UPDATE: Reader Kira B. tells us that “one car got spared by 2 inches, not a scratch. No houses got hit since those houses are set back from the street. That fence is pretty damaged and the top of the tree came down so don’t know how that car [parked behind the fence] fared.”

That same block of Funston also lost a tree last summer.

Photos: Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi visits Clement Street merchants

Ryan Allen and Salvador Tovar, co-owners of ‘Sparky’s Fun & Joy’ receive a ‘Certificate of Congressional Recognition’ on their 5th anniversary in Inner Richmond neighborhood.

Last Saturday, Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi took a merchant stroll along Clement Street to visit local small businesses and talk with their owners.

The Congresswoman’s office said she believes small businesses are the engine of our economy, and this was an opportunity to support and meet small business owners in her Congressional district.

Pelosi was accompanied by Cynthia Huie, head of the Clement Street Merchants Association. The visit included stops at Seedstore, Park Life, Toy Boat, Green Apple Books, and Nourish Cafe.

Sparky’s Fun & Toys received a special ‘Certificate of Congressional Recognition’ from Congresswoman Pelosi in honor of their 5th anniversary in the neighborhood.

Pelosi is a fan of dark chocolate, and we noticed that Toy Boat owner Jesse Fink is offering her up a chocolate ice cream cone in one pic. We also gave her a dark chocolate chip cookie at Nourish. :)

She also stopped in at Blue Danube cafe, 6th Avenue Aquarium & Flowers, Burma Superstar, Wing Lee Bakery, and Schubert’s Bakery.

On Sunday afternoon around 4:30pm, SFFD received a report that a woman had fallen off a cliff at Lands End in the area below the Legion of Honor.

She was rescued about an hour later by an emergency boat and a jet ski. She was taken to a nearby harbor and put on an ambulance but was not sent to a hospital, the fire department said.

It is unknown at this time if she sustained any injuries.

Flickr member Eugene Kim happened to be on an evening stroll at Lands End when he came upon a fire truck on the coastal trail, assisting in the rescue.

“I wasn’t expecting this when I set out for an evening stroll!” he wrote on Flickr.
