The trees compressed the kitchen wall causing damage to the foundation and the kitchen inside.

This tree knocked down on chimney and broke rafters in the roof creating the "dip". Another was also broken in front and on the other side of the house.

The wind picked up the porch and knocked out the support beams under the house. The tree hit the porch and roof creating several holes in the roof. One branch came through the upstairs and "stuck out like a spear."

Another view of the trees which crashed down onto the side of the house creating a hole 6' x 2'.

This is a view of the damage right around the corner from Tecia's home/office.

This is a tree that was completely uprooted in the back yard. Some of the trees lost were over 70 years old.
