Storm causes tree to fall on home near North Main

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Strong storms drenched the Midlands Thursday afternoon and knocked over a tree into a home in Columbia on Benton Street just off North Main Street.  

One neighbor said he heard a crack and then the tree crash.

Pictures show the tree caught the edge of the home, took off some siding, and went through the roof.

The tree also landed on a nearby power line. SCE&G came to the scene to clean up the lines.

Neighbors say no one was home at the time, and there have been no reports of injuries.
