A family in Hazel Green said the loss of large oak tree in Monday's storms marked the end of nine generations of family history.

Shari Appel shared comparison photos of the tree, which she said is at least 200 years old and resided at her grandparents' farm. Her grandfather passed away in March.

"He would be so sad to know this tree is gone, but then again, we are in a way happy that he didn't see it fall," Shari said.
