Tree lands on house in Hilton, branch pierces ceiling

Weather

A downed tree in Hilton caused problems for residents on Sunday as winds whipped through the area.

The wind gusts have been packing a punch, including taking down the tree on Henry Street in Hilton.

The tree came down shortly after the storm started. The main part of the tree missed the house but a branch pierced the roof and ceiling. Megan DeMarco was home at the time.

The wind was whistling but she hadn’t worried about the tree.

DeMarco told us, “I was taking a nap and I heard a very loud noise… which I thought was a branch just hitting our house, but it ended up going through our ceiling.”

Thankfully, no one was hurt by the tree.
