Fierce Winds Topple Tree Onto Home’s Roof

 Wednesday, March 18, 2015


A Delaware County man’s decision to stay up late Tuesday night may have saved his life. The incident happened around 8:00 p.m. on the 2300 block of Franklin Avenue. Raymond King of Ridley Township says he was watching TV downstairs when the fierce winds howled and a 40-year-old tree on his property came crashing down on his roof, right into his upstairs bedroom.
"Normally, I got to bed around 7:00 p.m. during the week. Thank God I decided to stay up a little later, if not I would’ve been upstairs when that fell.
