Severe storms moving through the northern part of Hartford County brought a tree crashing down onto a house in East Granby late Tuesday afternoon.

Footage from the scene shows a giant tree toppled onto the home on North Main Street.

"It looks like the windstorm came through, twisted the tree, blew it over in the front yard," said family friend Cliff Gibson.

Fortunately, the homeowner was not there when the tree came down. Her dog, Pachuco, escaped scared but unharmed.

"We're very blessed here because the tree is big, it's not far from the house. The angle that it fell, it just seems like it grazed a few things, did a little cosmetic damage, but no one was hurt, and that's really all we care about," Gibson explained.

The incident is one of several damage reports in the area after severe storms left hundreds of people without power Tuesday evening.
