Tree falls on 91-year-old woman's yard

BLUE ASH, OH (FOX19) - Tuesday's storms brought some damage to areas of the Tri-State.

On Hunt Road in Blue Ash, an elderly woman had a tree fall across her yard.

"At first we heard lightning and thunder and then all of a sudden the wind got real strong and then I heard a big noise and I looked out and this big tree fell down on my neighbors front porch," said neighbor Tony Nichols.

The home's owner, Viola Ripperger, spoke to FOX19's Dave Culbreth.  She said she's lived in the home for 60 years.

"I've been watching that tree for a long time," said Ripperger.

Her family hopes the city is able to remove the tree, since it is partially blocking traffic on Hunt.
