BRANDON (FOX 13) – A family of six is out of their home and cars Thursday night after a massive tree came toppling down into their yard.
Four cars were nearly crushed from the weight of the tree. Strangely, it fell during perfect weather.
If any of them had been pulling out of their driveway, or even standing on their front porch, they could have been crushed. Seeing all the damage, it’s amazing no one was hurt.

After the crash, came the cleanup. Piles of debris lined the outside of the home on Kingsway Road.
Family members said it was a sunny morning, and the crash of a falling tree was the last thing they expected to hear.
“I said, ‘What the heck was that?’ so I come running outside and saw this,” neighbor Steve Kelly said, pointing to the aftermath.
A 70-foot tree, crushing four cars in its path, fell from Kelly’s yard.
“Seems to be catching around here. A lot of trees are falling down,” he explained to FOX 13 News.
