Tree falls on house, displaces 5 residents

ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - A tree fell on a house in St. Johns County on Wednesday, making the house uninhabitable and displacing five people.

Dwayne Myers said he jolted out of bed at about 3 a.m. when he heard a huge crash.

"Sounded like a train was coming through. The tree snapped and broke out, coming through the house," Myers said.

Rescuers were called to the home in the 5000 block of Big Oak Road South in the central part of the county.

There were no injuries reported.

The Red Cross was assisting the four adults and one child who lived in the home.

The power was being disconnected from the house because of loose wires.
