Hayden Man Escapes Death In Storm

In one Hayden Lake neighborhood more than a dozen trees came down and several homes were damaged in Wednesday night's wind and rain storm. No one was seriously hurt but one man said he came close to death when a tree came crashing into his home. Fred LeClair of Hayden Lake said he went to bed early last night and awoke to the sound of his roof caving in. "I'm still in shock, it's amazing, that's a big tree in the house," said LeClair/KHQ.
