(KMOV) – A tree became uprooted and crashed onto a home in Potosi following a storm that hit the area Thursday evening. 

An elderly woman was inside when the tree smashed through the roof and partially entered the bedroom shortly before 8 p.m. 
 

Shalie Eye told News 4 her grandma was walking toward the back door and something told her to go back inside. She was able to make it to the basement before the tree fell. 
 
“I guess it was God and the tree fell down,”  Eye said of her grandmother’s experience.
 
The woman was not seriously injured. She was transported to an area hospital with chest pains. 
 
There have been no other reports of damage or injury in Washington County.
