Tree Lands on House During Storm

(La Porte, IN) - There were some fallen trees and limbs locally from last night’s heavy rainstorm.


25-year old Alex Stormer lives in the 100 block of I Street in La Porte. He came home from work to see a tree on top of his house. Another large section of the tree landed between his house and a residence next door and damaged his neighbor’s fence.


“I came home from work with a tree on my roof,” Stormer said.


There was some damage to his roof, but the extent of the damage was not immediately known. There were also limbs down just a short distance away at I Street and 4th Street.


La Porte County Highway Department Superintendent Duane Werner said just a handful of trees came down out in the rural areas. He was not aware of any major damage.
