Wicked winds led to a terrifying experience for a Detroit homeowner when they knocked a monster tree onto his home.

Corey Walker has been living in the home for 5-years with his wife and two young kids. He says he got the scare of his life around one this afternoon when the tree, uprooted and fell onto his home.

The big pine tree has left the home in the 11800 block of Pierson buried by branches.

Inside, there’s even more damage. Branches pierced the drywall in the bedroom and there are debris everywhere.

Corey says they will not be sleeping there tonight, just in case the wall caves in.

Corey says the only good news in all of this is that no one was hurt. He says he has called the city and is waiting for them to come out.
