WESLEY HILLS -

A  Wesley Hills family says they woke up to trees crashing through their roof at 5 a.m.

Carrie Dweck, who lives with her husband and their three children, says it wasn't a gust of wind or a late-night storm that brought down their trees. The Dwecks think a wet tree from recent rainstorms could be to blame for the damage.

“It was a complete game of dominoes. There was a very large hickory tree that came from my neighbor and that just seems to have hit every tree that I had on my property,” she says.

The Dwecks say it’s going to take a long time to clean up, but they feel lucky because things could have been a lot worse.
