Severe weather in the area early Thursday caused power outages and downed poles and trees.

Homeowners Scott and Michelle Roehl in Bowling Green woke up to a big tree on their house around 7 a.m.

They were both inside when it happened, but thankfully neither of them were hurt.

Scott says he went downstairs into the kitchen to watch the storm move through, and that's when it happened.

"The wind picked up more than it had been and the tree started creaking, and I knew something was going to happen," said Scott. "So I just ducked and ran to the other side of the house and heard the tree come through.

He said there was dust and debris all through the house, and he was yelling up the stairs to make sure his wife was OK.

The fire department then came to the scene to assess the damage and what could be done.

"So yeah, we have a huge maple tree in the second floor of our house right now," Scott said.

First Alert Meteorologist Ryan Wichman says so many downed trees are due to high moisture in the soil. The tree roots aren't able to grip as well, causing even healthy trees to fall in 50-60 mph winds.
