Tree Destroys a Garage in Decatur

Posted: Updated:

Decatur- One family in Decatur is facing some major cleanup after a tree feel on their garage due to strong winds. 

The massive tree fell on the garage around 11:30 AM....crushing a suburban that was parked in it. 

Neighbors across the street say their house shook when the tree came crashing down. "The whole neighborhood heard it pretty much. We were all in our backyards." Tabitha Walter, a witness said. 

Despite the major damage to the garage, there were no injuries reported, and crews were able to safely remove tree branches from the power line. Neighbors report only being out of power for about an hour. 

The full extent of the damage will not be known until the tree is removed from the garage.

The cost of all the damage has yet to be determined.
