    In a big storm; elm tree falls through roof of house in Kippington. Shot of tree leaning into house at 45 degree angle; very woodsy area; other trees in BG. CU of the huge tree trunk stuck into the brick building; with stones fallen away from the wall--this is indeed some serious damage. 3 women standing under the sloping tree trunk;next to the house: these are the occupants who 'miraculously escaped'.
