Blustery conditions caused widespread power outages and damage to homes on Wednesday.
A tree crashed through an apartment on Dogwood Court in East Asheville around 3 p.m. Friday afternoon. Elizabeth Maldonado tells News 13 she was in bed watching a movie when she heard a loud cracking sound and the tree fell through her roof.
Maldonado says the tree damaged most of her bedroom and cut power to the building. She says she's thankful to be alive.
