The branches of a large tree gave out and landed on the roof of a Mountain View home at 350 Higdon Ave. early Sunday morning.
According Mountain View Fire Department Capt. Tim Harvey, despite there not being any gusts of wind shortly before 1:45 a.m., the large branches must have been weighed down after days of stormy weather.
A larger incident was miraculously avoided, Harvey explained, because the branches avoided taking down some power lines—that connected directly to the home—and which hung inches from where the branches landed.
Harvey confirmed that there was no structural damage and the residents were uninjured.
