    A jogger jumps over fallen tree on Nuuanu Pali Drive. Traffic was blocked in both directions after falling sometime during the night.

Police advised motorists that Nuuanu Pali Drive will be closed indefinitely today after a large tree fell on the road, blocking both lanes.

Police said the removal of the tree will take "a long time" and that they will advise the public once the road is reopened.

The tree, which is about 50- to 60-feet tall, fell before dawn at the 3900 block of Nuuanu Pali Drive.
