During heavy rain and wind, tree comes crashing on Sandy Springs home

Posted: Updated:

A family in Sandy Springs is thankful they were not injured after a huge tree came toppling over in their back yard and onto their house during heavy rain and high winds early Tuesday morning.

The tree came down in the living room area of the home on Elden Drive while Pat and Sam Hayes were sound asleep in their bedroom. The tree landed just a few feet away from them.

"You're in your deep sleep, because it was 2 a.m., and it was like, 'OK, is this real?'" said Pat Hayes.

She and her husband said they have removed several trees from their property in recent years to prevent this kind of thing from happening.
