Falling Tree Destroys Home

Tuesday evening's storm caused a tree to crash on a Carroll County home, and displaced the family inside, Carroll County Fire Chief Deputy Bud Benefield told WLBB Radio Wednesday morning.

"The heavier part of the storm started coming through the area around 9:00 last night," Benefield said. "We received numerous reports of trees down and power lines blown."

One of those calls was about a home on Opal Lane , where the large hickory tree outside had fallen, "pretty much destroying the home," according to Benefield.
"It was a two- story split level home in the Shady Grove community," he said. "Fortunately, none of the family inside was injured."

The Red Cross is currently assisting this family.
