Trees uprooted, crash through Livingston home

Two giant trees were uprooted Saturday, crashing down on a Livingston resident's home.

Bill Culver says he was inside the house when the trees fell. He desribes the crash as sounding like a freight train had brushed against his home.

"I'm just happy that no one was hurt," says Culver.

The trees managed to miss hitting power lines on their way down. Authorities aren't sure if the trees were knocked over by wind or if they fell due to age.
