TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Strong wind on Monday afternoon caused a massive tree to topple over, crushing a mobile home. It happened at the Carousel Ranch Mobile home park near Flowing Wells and Wetmore.

Northwest Fire District officials said an 81-year-old woman was trapped inside, as the tree landed right over her front door. Luckily she wasn’t injured and firefighters were able to open the back door to get her and her cat out.

On the other side of town, at a home near 29th and Kolb, the storm shattered five of the Pope family’s double-dome skylights. The family heard the hail pound down on their roof. They went out into the garage and found broken glass all over their cars. There was also glass shards all over their bathroom
floor. The family said their front lawn was coated in hail.

“In the 49 years I’ve been here, we’ve had some hail storms, we’ve had some rain in the monsoon but no damage like this,” George Pope said.

A tree removal company will be heading out to chop up the tree at the mobile home park off of Flowing Wells and get it off the property. The woman who lives in the trailer will be staying with family, and her trailer may be a total loss.
