In one block along Tabor Street, two massive trees fell victim to super storm Sandy. One two hundred-year-old oak tree landed on a house.
"It shook the house like it was a bomb going off," said Lee Gutshao, who has lived in the house with his family for the past two years. According to Gutshao, strong gusts of wind started around 9:30 pm Monday night. "There was a bad gust of wind that made the windows shake and hum, then the tree fell over and made a really loud boom and you could hear the glass shatter."
The tree landed on the side of Gutshao's house, causing the most damage to the roof. Fire officials who inspected the home say it's structurally sound, meaning the Gutshaos can stay in their home while repairs are made.
