Question:

Leaves from a tree on my porch flew into my neighbors porch and stuffed their drain. Am I liable for damages?

Answer:

Answer from Horav Y. Fleishman ahlit”a

Were you told to do something bec they could damage?. It is very likely that in any case even if you were warned that you are not liable and certainly if you weren’t warned you aren’t chayav at least bedenei odom. It is like כותל ואילן שנפלו –ושם לא מחייבים אא”כ הוזהר. והוא הרבה פחות משם כי שם הזיקו באופן ישיר ופה אח”כ היה צריך עזרה של רוח ומים מסתמא
