KENNESAW, GA (CBS46) -

A Father's Day get-together came to an abrupt end overnight when high winds from a thunderstorm caused a tree to fall onto home with 15 people inside.

No one was hurt when the tree fell at approximately 2 a.m. The home on Jessica Way had major damage to its attic and two bedrooms.

"Very upsetting," said Cathy Neher, who owns the home and rents it to a family of three. "We had some young children and some older kids."

Neher told CBS Atlanta News that several extended family members were visiting the home for the Father's Day weekend. Some friends of the teenage daughter also were visiting.

"I'm just very thankful everybody's OK," Neher said.
