EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WFIE) - The wind gusts brought down trees on Friday morning with houses in Evansville littered in the landing zone.

Two homeowners on East Powell Avenue saw the backs of their homes fall victim to a nearly 100-foot tree just before 9 a.m.

The owner of the house which the tree fell from said this damage is not like anything he has seen before. He’s owned the house for 40 years now.

The next-door neighbor’s house also saw substantial damage. She said her family was unharmed, but she is concerned about whether the house will stand once the tree is lifted out.

The owner of the property with the fallen tree, however, is happy that everyone who lived on the property was unharmed.

”You know, we’ve cut down tree limbs or whatever, but we’ve never had anything blow over in Evansville the last 40 years,” homeowner Ira Milan said. “Never had nothing blow over until today. House can be replaced, rebuilt, whatever, but people, as long as no one got hurt, that’s all I care about.”

Both homeowners say they are fearing for the worst, believing their homes could be at a total loss.
