Plant City, Florida - A scary situation for a Plant city woman. She was just feet away when a tree came crashing onto her home Tuesday afternoon.

Unfortunately, her home has suffered some damage to the roof. Not one, but two trees came crashing down Tuesday afternoon within 30 minutes of each other. One in her yard, the other on her home. The sounds of chain saws are music to Barbara's ears.  It means the process to getting her power back is under way.

Barbara Roberts Kibler was out in her yard when this all happened.

"The tree here in the front fell first, and I looked out and saw it and I was taking pictures of it, and then I heard something cracking so I looked up, it's not that tree, it must be that one. God told me to get out of the way, and as soon as I did, I had not walked 10 feet the whole thing fell," says Kibler.

There is one more concern, a large tree just a few feet where the other two used to stand.  It's just like the other two that fell, huge and old.

Officials with the city came by Tuesday night and say it may have to come down before it falls down, causing more damage. Kibler says she's just thankful no one was hurt.
