Pelham - Phyllis Williford of Pelham was in bed asleep when a tree limb crashed through her roof. When she woke up she stared up at the limb of an oak tree pointing directly at her throat.

Williford is upset about the damage, but thankful no one was hurt. She says, "We grew up here. This house has a lot of memories and a lot of meaning. I am absolutely happy nobody got hurt. As a matter of fact, as my brother said, it's only by the grace of God."

Right now Ms. Williford is trying to to figure out a way to remove the tree from the house. They are staying with a family member while repairs are done.
