ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Monday's storms left patients at J. Ellis Cosby Family Eye Care startled after a tree came through the roof. 

The office is located off of Whispering Pines road.

Dr. Cosby said the storm came quickly. 

He had patients in several exam rooms, when a tree came smashing down on the roof. 

Other trees had fallen on cars in the back parking lot.

Cosby said it came as a surprise to everyone. 

"Limbs through the roof," said Cosby. "We had patients in exam chairs, a limb came right side down beside the patient in the exam chair. God blessed us today with nobody injured. My staff is okay. No patients were hurt, and I'm just blessed."

Crews showed up on scene immediately to try and get the trees off the roof.
