Storm causes tree to snap, falls on house


Many Central Texans felt the effects of Thursday's severe storms, but one Temple homeowner noticed something unusual in his front yard.

Not only did a piece of metal from a nearby barn land in his yard, but one of the trees on his property snapped during the storm and landed on his roof.

Dwayne Simmons said he's lived at his home for a decade and this was something he won't soon forget.

"I've been here 15 years, I'm sure the winds were 60, 70 miles plus the way it looked. It was pretty bad," Simmons said. 

Other trees on his property were also damaged. He says he isn't too worried because his insurance could cover the cost of the damage.
