Saturday's storms damaged homes; some worse than others. One homeowner lived at her home near Lake O' The Pines for thirteen years until a tree came crashing down on her roof this past weekend.

ORE CITY, TX (KLTV) - "We heard the wind blowing and my husband said this is [about] to be bad, 'cause you could feel the house actually moving. And I just said, 'God protect us,' 'cause I knew something was [about] to happen," Kay Watson said.

Watson was home with four of her family members when a tree came crashing through her roof. The tree fell through her dining room, barely missing her bedroom.

"If it had fallen straight it [would have] fallen right on me and my husband; [...] it would have killed us," she said.

Watson said the experience was terrifying and she is happy her family is safe.

"All I can say is God was with us 'cause I told my husband I just prayed," she said. "I said 'God protect me and my family' [...] and he did, He protected us."

The family said they are grateful to be alive and to see another day.
