ETX woman wakes up to a tree in her house

Posted: Updated:

An East Texas family is patching up their roof after a neighbor's tree fell onto their house. 

The tree fell over at around 1:30 Wednesday morning in the 500 block of Wilma Street in Tyler. 

Part of the tree fell onto the family's roof and made several holes. Those holes are temporarily patched up, as is a front window that was broken by a falling limb.

The man hired to clean up the mess says the tree was already leaning. He says Tuesday night's storms made the soil soft enough for the tree to fall over. 

No one was hurt.
