Strong Winds Topple Massive Tree into Beaverdale Home
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Even though central Iowa is not dealing with snow, strong winds are taking out large trees. A resident in the Beaverdale neighborhood said a huge part of a tree fell on top of a house on Lower Beaver Road and shook his entire house next door. “So last night my girlfriend and I were watching TV in the bedroom and out of nowhere we just heard this crazy noise, it almost sounded like thunder or lightning or something and then like a huge crash. And the ground kind of shook and so we ran outside and come to find the neighbors tree on their house,” Des Moines resident Ryan Majors said.
