Tree branches smash into Marathon County house


MARATHON COUNTY (WAOW)--Strong winds knocked down several enormous tree branches sending them smashing into a house on Decatur Ave just north of Wausau.

Deanna Eckardt says that when she heard the tree cracking she panicked but managed to run for cover.

"You think you're going to react in a good way. My adrenaline was going so bad, I was shaking so bad that I didn't know which way to go," Eckardt said. "It was just sheer panic and fear. I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest. I've never gone through something like that."

Luckily no one was hurt.


Eckardt says that structurally, her house was able to withstand most the force from the tree.
