A house in Milford was seriously damaged after a tree came down on it during a storm on Thursday.

It happened at a home on Lindy Street.

No injuries were reported, but the family, including a 7-year-old child, was inside the home when the tree came crashing down.

"It's kind of crazy when you step outside and you see a tree sitting in your house," said homeowner Ryan Crowley.

The Crowley family can't believe what the massive tree did to their home. Melissa and her 7-year-old son Jacob were watching TV when the storm became violent.

"All of a sudden the wind picked up and it started raining sideways along the windows and I looked out the other window, and then I hear a crash and him scream and there's a tree in our house," Melissa Crowley said.

"I was actually standing in our dining room and probably about five feet from me I heard a crack and a bang and the next thing I knew there was a tree in my house," Ryan Crowley said.

Incredibly no one was hurt but the tree trapped everyone inside. The neighbors helped get the family out.

Ryan Crowley said the house was having renovations done at the time of the incident, and the roof had just been completed at 1 p.m.on Thursday.

"The roofers left our house at one 1 this afternoon. They finished our roof at 1 p.m. and it's gone," he said.

The Crowleys are staying with family members Thursday night and they plan to start rebuilding on Friday.

Strong storms rolled through the state on Thursday afternoon, leaving a path of destruction behind.

The storms prompted several weather warnings and watches.
