Andrea takes down tree onto Wilmington woman's home

WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) – Imagine being sound asleep, and being awoken to a thunderous boom. That's what Raquel Day woke up to, as a tree was slammed through her home early Friday morning.

Around 10am, Day was awoken to the violent crash through her home on Peachtree Avenue. Trapped inside, neighbors ran to Day's rescue, helping her out of her broken home. Day nor her pets were injured from the tree or flying debris, but were very scared.

The American Red Cross is stepping up, putting day and her pets up in a hotel for three nights as she begins to piece her life back together and hopefully finds a new home.  Day also says the support of her community has been overwhelming in her time of need.
