One Parkersburg couple got a rude awakening Thursday night.
It happened at 2320 Fairview Avenue where Tyler Knowlton and his wife got a phone call from a neighbor saying that a tree fell on their garage.
Knowlton then came outside and saw the tree fall in between the garage and a neighbor's fence.
He says the tree was dead from the vines.
Fortunately no one was hurt.
"It was pretty strange to me simply for the fact that I thought I was going to wake up to lightning and thunder and real bad winds but honestly, it just come down to be a God thing for me," says Knowlton.
Knowlton says he plans on getting help from his insurance company or chainsawing the old tree down himself.
