A quick period of strong storms left a house on Savannah's south side split in two.
The winds were strong enough to uproot a large oak tree causing it to crash onto a house on Davidson Ave.
It was a narrow escape for the three men living inside the home. They had to literally climb the tree to get out of the house.
"Next thing you know you hear a cracking noise and before anybody could get out of their rooms you just heard this load boom sound," said Tony Baker, who was renting the house. "It's just a shock."
The tree is estimated to be around 100 years old and weighing nearly 45,000 pounds. The impact was strong enough to crack the foundation of the house. The house was completely destroyed.
No one was hurt. A dog had been trapped inside, but was pulled out by fire crews.
