The family that lives there said they are forced to stay somewhere else because of the damage.

Felicia Ellis, who lives there, said around 9 p.m., she was getting ready to go to work and her children were getting ready to go to bed, but she heard a strange sound.

“All of a sudden I heard a crack and a loud boom and it went dark,” she said. “And I don’t like the dark and I told my son, I think a tree fell.”

Branches of the tree went through the roof causing parts of the ceiling to collapse.

Luckily, no one was injured.
