Police said they were called at around 7.12am after high winds blew a large tree into the road, blocking it in both directions.
Highways crews and tree surgeons are currently at the scene and are attempting to “work on the tree” to remove it. Officers said the road would be closed for “some time”.
Engineers from Western Power Distribution have also been called to the scene as power lines have been affected in the area.
Elsewhere, the A399 in Combe Martin is also closed due to a fallen tree and fallen power cables. The road is closed in both directions at Mill Lane junction.
