Tree Falls On Top of a Garage After Powerful Storms

MCGAHEYSVILLE, Va. (WHSV)-- The storm that did this damage wasn't very big in area, but packed a powerful punch. The trees it damaged crushed a garage and punched through a bedroom wall.

A woman who lives in the house shares what it was like when she found the mess.

"My initial thought was, we didn't know. We just heard a very loud crash, and when we opened the garage door, it was just beyond words. We were just so shocked that we could hardly speak," said Martha Magalis, the homeowner.

She said the storm that swept through reminded her of the Derecho of 2012.

Three huge trees also snapped off in today's storm causing this damage.
