Tree Falls on Home in Northwest Gainesville
GAINESVILLE- Storm coverage doesn't always come over the airwaves. Sometimes it comes on top of your house.
Tropical Storm Isaac has steered clear of Gainesville but people have still felt the effects of ongoing rain.
Extended periods of rain that experts say left the lawn of an area home unstable.
"I just heard like a loud boom," said Amy Carnley.
The boom that Carnley heard was a tree paying an unwelcome visit on her roof.
A 25-to-30-year old Laurel Oak tree fell on Carnley's home in Northwest Gainesville Monday afternoon.
"I kind of suspected it was a tree but I didn't know that it was my house," says Carnley.
Tree service technicians responded to the emergency that occurred during lunchtime hours and say apart from increased rain recently the tree fell for a number of reasons.
Gator Tree Service Owner, Anthony Dobosiewicz, "there's weight, there's rain, there's wind, the soil is wet, the roots are damaged, you add it all together and you end up with a failed tree and that's what happened here."
Carnley says during the time of the accident and says that no one was injured.
