HIGH POINT, N.C. — A family is without a home right now.
Powerful, overnight winds knocked over two trees – that crashed right into a High Point house on Wickham Avenue.
WFMY News 2 talked to a neighbor who heard and saw the whole thing happen.
"It sounded like crackling lightning before you heard the boom you heard the lightning crackling," Kenneth Debnam said.
Debnam's two backyard trees fell onto his neighbors wall and entire roof around 2:30 a.m. Monday.
"I ran outside the front door to see if everything was OK and they were already evacuating their premises."
Debnam said the family who lives there ran out without taking any of their belongings.
"It was pretty scary."
They had to use Debnam's cell phone to call 911.
"My neighbor actually borrowed my phone and called 911," Debnam said. "After that the fire trucks and ambulance came but there were no real injuries to anybody."
The High Point Fire Department said amazingly there were no injuries, but say the Red Cross is helping out the family because the house is currently unlivable.
"I’m glad no one was hurt because it was a really close call."
WFMY News 2 also checked in with Guilford Metro 911. Dispatchers say there were several trees down on roads from overnight winds, but no significant damage.
