Oak Tree Crashes into Oakmont Home

Last Updated: 02-27-19


A large oak tree lies atop the Meadowridge Drive home of Sue Dibble and Jeanne DeJoseph the morning of Feb. 27. Runoff from a heavy downpour that soaked Santa Rosa with an all-time record one-day rainfall of 5.66 inches turned Badger Creek to surging flow. The creek apparently ate away the bank beneath the old oak, sending it onto the roof of the home about 12:30 a.m. Neither occupant was injured. (Photo by Marty Thompson)
