UPDATE: A reporter spoke to the Homeowner who said he and his wife had just gotten home and were about to walk into the house during the storm when the tree fell.
Their two older sons were inside. One of the sons is Autism Spectrum and was quite shaken, but neither the parents or the sons were hurt. A pet cat, named JINKS, however, was not so lucky and died when the tree crashed.
Chester’s Building Department has ruled the house is uninhabitable.
