Storm brings tree down on vehicle


Tuesday afternoon's storm left some damage in its wake, particularly for one Savannah family.

A big tree in their front yard came down and landed right on their car, narrowly missing their home. While the owners didn't want to speak on camera, they did said they were blessed the tree missed their home, and said they had planned to take the tree down anyway.

"When I was out, my son called me and said ‘momma, the lightning done struck the tree and it hit the neighbor's house and cars,'" said neighbor Lorena Johnson. "When we went out, all we heard was the crushing glass from the vehicles."

The owners were working to clean up the area before night fell, with several neighbors lending a helping hand.
