Scottsville Family's Home Damaged After Winter Storm

SCOTTSVILLE, Ky. -- One family's home is damaged after Saturday night's storm caused a tree to fall on it Sunday morning.

The homeowner's son-in-law, David Carter, spent hours removing the tree from the roof and covering it with a tarp.

He said the weight of the ice on the tree that was splitting in half caused it to fall -- leaving damage inside and out of the house.

The home is on Petty Lane in Scottsville and was built just a few years ago.

"A lot of damage to the house. It's leaking all over inside. The limb shot clear through the wall -- through the shower. They were in the bed at the time when it happened -- scared both of them to death," Carter said.

The family said they hope it will be repaired by Christmas, but they're just thankful no one was hurt. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
