BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) — A tree at least 50 feet tall fell through a Buffalo home Saturday afternoon.

The tree, rooted in front of 81 Lakeview Ave off Porter Ave., snapped and smashed through the roof of a front room. As of 5 p.m., the tree is resting on the roof.

News 4 was on the scene and spoke with a neighbor whose home took some damage from the same tree.

“My tenant was here. One of my tenants lives downstairs. He was inside and he said he heard a boom and the whole house shook. And then he looked outside and realized the tree was on top of the house,” said Bishnu Kapri.

Officials in Buffalo say there have been eight displaced and no injuries.
