Amid the gunshot-like sounds of branches snapping on Saturday, there was one noise that sounded more like a cannon. Turns out it was a giant oak tree falling on my block — and one of my neighbors, Rick Gearhart, managed to capture it on videotape, which he shared with Eyewitness News.
Luckily no one was injured, but the street tree smashed straight into the house across the street from Gearhart, causing tens of thousands of dollars of damage. It’s amateur video, but no less astonishing to see devastation in action. Watch it here.
