Several neighbors on Donald Court were home and heard the ground buckle beneath two huge trees just a few feet apart

"We heard this fall down, and my mom came through last night and noticed all of them," said Lucy King. "This morning, we were coming through and looking at it and mom asked if we could help."

Fortunately, the falling trees did not damage homes.

Karl Frank is thankful for that. 

"You could hear another crack a little bit. Then about another 30 seconds, you hear another crack and it got louder you know. I was like oh that’s probably that tree," he said. "Open the door and sure enough here it is laying in the front yard. Thankfully it went this way and not toward the house."
