Tree Falls on House During Storm

(LaPorte, IN) - A house in LaPorte damaged by a fallen tree during one of the storms yesterday.

The large tree fell on the roof of the two-story home 1005 First Street. Stephanie Brown says she was home with her husband and four children when the tree came down about 2 p.m. as the winds picked up just prior to the rain.


“We just got done swimming in the backyard.  I was sitting on the couch in the living room when it all happened,” she said. First Street was closed from Lincolnway to State Street to allow crews with

help from a crane to remove the tree. 


La Porte Street Department Superintendent Mike Frase said he expected the work that began at 7:30 this morning to be finished before 12 p.m.
