Tree damages home in Mableton

Posted: Updated:
MABLETON, Ga. -

Two families say weather alerts helped them prepare for a storm that toppled a large tree in Mableton. Strong winds slammed the tree onto a home.

The tree sat just outside Ruby Lockett's bedroom. She said that strong winds made the tree sway before it finally crashed onto a neighbor's home.

Frank Pruitt owns the home. He said that the home's tenant, a young mother, had gotten early notification about the severe weather. She had her children in a bathtub with a mattress on top of them.

No one was hurt.

The home suffered major damage. Pruitt is hoping to salvage some of the property.
