Half of tree falls on Decatur home; other half still dangling

Posted: Updated:

Emergency crews responded to a Decatur neighborhood Wednesday morning where a tree fell on a house.

It happened not far from Decatur Square, on South McDonough Street early in the morning.

Half of the tree landed on the house, while the other half was barely hanging on.

Crews scrambled to figure out the best way to cut the tree down before it fell onto another house.

The home took the biggest hit and has some significant damage, especially to the front porch.

The fallen tree knocked out power for the entire block.

Georgia Power workers will have to cut the line to get to the tree, so it was unclear when power would be restored.

The homeowners were inside the house when the tree fell, but no one was hurt.
