Tree falls on home in Morristown

A man in Morristown had a scary wake up call after a tree collapsed onto his home early Monday morning.

Video shot by MorristownGreen.com shows the 100-foot-tall tree that hit a two-story house on Madison Street.

Authorities say 83-year-old Noah Chappell was asleep on the first floor when the tree crushed his home. They say repairs could take up to a month to be completed.
