Tree slams through Coventry house
COVENTRY, R.I. (WJAR) —
A 60-foot tree crashed into a home in Coventry during Tuesday’s snowstorm.
The tree in their backyard snapped and then fell onto their porch.
The branches penetrated the roof and poked through the ceiling.
The homeowners said they believe it was the result of heavy snow and strong winds.
"I was looking out the door at the tree and I saw it starting to fall and I just yelled to my wife to look out,” Shelldon Clark said.
Clark said the family is working with their insurance company. A building inspector also came out to survey the damage and did not condemn the home.
No one was hurt.
