High winds downed large trees and damaged at least two properties early Friday morning. Rob Mangone of 705 Tulip Tree Court in Fletcher showed us the two large pine trees that fell on top of the family cars. Mangone says one car is totaled, and the other badly damaged. But, his family of six is counting their blessings. The trees barely missed the house, where Mangone, his wife and four children were sleeping.
The gusty winds also put a large tree through a roof of a small home at 840 Tunnel Road. Landlord Jim Hoyle says the renter inside was shaken, but okay, and is getting help through the Red Cross. The longtime landlord says this is the most damage any of his properties have had. He fears the home is a total loss.
