EAGLE POINT, Ore. -- Many people in the Rogue Valley reported power outages and damage Friday from strong wind gusts.
An Eagle Point family is feeling lucky after a massive tree in their front yard narrowly missed their home.
Charelle Oppelt said she was shopping in Medford when she got a call from a neighbor telling her she might want to get to her father's home.
"They said you're not going to believe this, but the wind just blew over your tree into the neighbor's yard, and I thought maybe it was a branch, like maybe they were overreacting," Oppelt said.
She got to the house and quickly learned that was not the case.
The giant tree had taken out her father's fence and landed partially in the neighbor's yard.
While the situation caused quite the headache, Oppelt said it could have been worse.
