There were three trees connected at the base splitting through the house bringing down a power line. The tree was originally rooted along a creek bed.
“My grandson was here but he just walked to the store, just missed it. I just left to go to Medford and we got a call that a tree was through the house. They’ve just been here too long and time for them to come down,” said resident Alvin Cox.
The residents have homeowners insurance.
