The oak tree that was made famous by the movie The Shawshank Redemption was severely damaged by wind on Friday afternoon.
A thunderstorm moving through the area on Friday at around 2:30 p.m. EDT produced straight-line winds that damaged the tree according to Mansfieldnewsjournal.com. The tree had a rotten center that weakened it.
The storm caused a power outage and damage to other trees. The power was restored by 6 p.m. EDT.
The oak tree is near the location where Andy, portrayed by Tim Robbins, hid his treasure.
Since the movie, based on a short story by Stephen King, many people visit the tree and take photos, according to Mansfieldnewsjournal.com.
A tour of the area has been set up by the Mansfield-Richland County Convention and Visitors Bureau. The tour highlights scenes from the film including the Ohio State Reformatory prison and the oak tree.
The tree is located on private property. It is unclear if the entire tree will need to be removed due to the damage.
