Tree Falls On House

Outside of Chanlder on Parkside drive Sunday the storm system that moved through East Texas caused problems. A huge oak tree uprooted and fell crushing the front porch and part of the house. Thankfully, Ashley Belonga and her two children had just entered the house.

"We had just got home we walked in the house. I put everything down. Starting to fix breakfast and stuff started shaking and flying off the shelves and stuff. I heard windows shattering. I grabbed the kids and ran to the back of the house because I thought it could have been a tornado." said Ashley, "We would have been under the porch maybe two minutes before then. We got lucky."

Ashley says they will be calling their insurance company to remove it and repair damages. No one was injured.
