Tree falls, damages West Carrollton home during Friday’s storms

WEST CARROLLTON — A West Carrollton woman says she and her husband were out to eat when they found out a tree blew onto their house during the storms that spun up two tornados in the Miami Valley on Friday night.

Christina Davis and her husband were near OH-725 and Yankee Street when a tornado warning was issued for the area, so she checked her phone.

“I looked on my doorbell camera and I seen the tree was on top of my house,” Davis said.

The couple ended up back at home to check on their two dogs that were home alone. Davis said they were just a little shaken up from the storms, but weren’t injured.

The tree crunched their front porch overhang, and Davis’s landlord had to tarp the roof. There was also damage inside the house not visible from their yard.

“The inside has a couple holes, a little bit of water damage, but it’s not to the point where it’s un-livable,” Davis said.

Nobody was hurt, and Davis said her landlord has already filed an insurance claim for the damage.

Davis said none of her other neighbors on the block took any damage during Friday’s storms, and her house was the only one hit.

Like most would feel after having a tree fall on their home, Davis hopes she doesn’t have to deal with any more storm damage this summer.
