The severe thunderstorm that blew in early Monday morning wreaked havoc in the Lower Bottle Lake area.
"The first oak hit the second oak, I believe, and they all went as one," said homeowner Sarah Smith. "I don't know where this popple came from." Another tree fell in her yard, toppling a fence. Tree limbs smashed potted Christmas cactuses on her porch as well. Neighbors and church members have already pledged to help with cleanup, Smith said.
