the Great Ginkgo at Kamakura City

A guard found that the Great Ginkgo(大銀杏) at Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu(鶴岡八幡宮), which is a Shinto shrine in Kamakura City, Kanagawa Prefecture, was blown down by the root early this morning.
The ginkgo had been standing there for over a thousand years and was designated as a prefectural natural monument.
It is said that the third shogun of the Kamakura Shogunate was assassinated close by the tree in 1219.
It's really too bad.
