Crews Cleaning Up Fallen Trees

Fallen trees was a common scene Friday around East Texas roads.  Some of them even came down on people's homes.  Crews at one Tyler home were cutting up limbs and dealing with a tree Saturday that fell in the yard.  Experts say when so much rain comes down so fast, trees with shallow roots just can't stay in the ground.  The homeowner says he's just thankful the tree missed his house.

"Naturally, it hurts when trees are gone because they're beautiful," said Homeowner Ed Mayzsak.  "That's what makes this area is the trees.  I'm just thankful it's not in the home."  Mayzsak says he's having crews look at five other trees near his house before they come tumbling down on his home.
