Massive Tree Removed From Home: Cleanup Continues After Monday's Storms
One Macon family is still recovering from Monday night’s storms. We took you to the Platt’s home where a huge tree fell on their roof.
When an unexpected storm hits and a tree lands on top of your home, life can get a bit confusing, but the Platt’s are dealing with the situation the best way they know how with a little bit of help from loved ones and a few professionals.
Monday night's storm blew trees down all across Middle Georgia and one fell atop Charles Platt's home, demolishing one half of his house. "It's a huge disaster but we are just so thankful to god that we are still alive and it wasn't worst," he says.
The entire master bed room, bathroom, and living area were seriously damaged, but friends came out in droves to clean up debris. "People from the neighborhood, people from out church and especially people from the neighborhood," he adds.
Even with all the help from friends and neighbors, there's just some task that they can't handle, so they called in the professionals. "Today we have a crane here to pull off the tree that fell on our house Monday night."
The rebuild may take months, but Charles says he's already ready to move on from this disaster. "The first thing is to get the tree of and then maybe get some tarps on there. We have the adjusters coming this afternoon and we will just go from there," he says.
Charles, like most people didn't expect something like this would ever happen to him, after the storm, he's had a change of heart. "It's always possible that if you have a huge tree near your house that it can crash into your house during a storm," says Platt.
