CHARLOTTE, NC — A tree crashes into a north Charlotte home during intense storms overnight.  A woman inside was able to get out safely just after it happened.

The tree cut straight through the home on Mason Drive, splitting the house right down the middle.  Family members say they were in shock when it happened.

“Then I heard a loud boom and I thought it was a tornado or a hurricane hitting me, so I ran to the bathroom in the bedroom, took my dog with me, and we both got inside the tub,” said Katina White-Price.

White-Price says the tree landed right next to the bed where she was sleeping.  She had gotten up to make a snack when it came crashing down.
