HEAD OF ISLAND, La.- Robert Wunstel says he thought the worst of Tropical Storm Lee was over. Then Sunday morning, a tree slammed into his home.

Wunstel says the oak took several minutes to lower through his house. That gave his family time to get out.

The tree also knocked the elevated home off its blocks. Floodwaters then became another problem. Wunstel says he is thankful no one was hurt. He says material things can always be replaced.
