Tree falls on apartment in Memphis

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (WMC) - A large tree fell on an apartment in Memphis early Saturday morning, collapsing the roof and sending torrential rain into the apartment.

A number of residents were affected. Two women inside one of the apartments said they heard what sounded like a very loud clap of thunder as the apartment vibrated.

Turns out, a large tree fell on the building. Debris is now scattered about and water is collecting inside.

Luckily, no one was injured. But they will have to find somewhere else to stay for the foreseeable future.

There are reports of trees down in other parts of Memphis, but the majority of the storm damage from Saturday morning’s storms appears to have happened in northern Mississippi.
