Centuries-Old Tree Comes Down During Shreveport Storms

(Story, photos, and video courtesy of KSLA, Shreveport, LA) -- The wind created a scary situation for one Ark-La-tex couple.


A tree estimated at more than 150-years-old crashed down on a house in the 1000 block of Delaware Street in Shreveport.


Bill Richardson and Flora Lebowitz were both home when the tree fell. Branches damaged the roof and one of their bathrooms.

They say they are just thankful the tree didn't injure them or their dog.

"I just feel very lucky. I wasn't there. He said get out of here, don't stay here and then the tree came crashing down and I was shocked," Lebowitz said.

A tree service says they will need a crane to remove the massive tree from the yard.
