A night of high wind gusts knocked a tree onto a home in Tice.

It happened on Miramar Street, Wednesday night.

The renters of the home were eating dinner when they heard a loud bang. They came out to find the large tree leaning on the home.


They said the wind was very strong in the area right before the tree came crashing down on the home.

Miguel Mejia, the homeowner, said the home’s renters called him after the tree fell.

“Kind of scary, and I saw the picture, and yeah, it was a big tree on their roof,” he said.

Luckily, the residents are OK but said it was certainly a scary moment, as the storms moved through.
