2 Trees fall on 2 Charlotte homes, Red Cross responds

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

Two trees fell onto two different Charlotte homes within a couple hours of each other on Friday.

The first happened at a home on the 2300 block of Tate Street in northwest Charlotte around 1 p.m.

From WBTV's Sky 3, workers could be seen on the roof of the home removing the tree. A hole could be seen in the roof where the tree had fallen.

Red Cross officials responded to the scene and is providing assistance to the family, two adults and one child, who they say will be unable to stay in the home.

The second incident happened at a home on the 7100 block of Linda Lake Drive in east Charlotte around 2:30 p.m.

WBTV's Sky 3 was over this scene as well, where a large tree appeared to have split down the center. One half landed on the home.

The owner of the home told WBTV that he was sitting on his back porch when he heard a large crack. He said he ran away as the tree crashed to the ground.

The owner said he believed that the tree was rotten, causing it to split down the middle.

Officials have not released a confirmed cause for either tree falling, but according to WBTV Meteorologist Ashley Batey, there was no severe weather in the area at the times.

No injuries were reported from either incident.

    Asheville residents often see bears. The mountains’ largest city is the focus of a five-year study of urban bears that pass through or live in and around the town. Residents have reason to be wary around animals that can reach 500 pounds, sport inch-long claws and sprint at 35 mph, but they’re also mostly tolerant of them. Because no hunting is allowed, the city serves as a bear sanctuary.
