Terry family avoids injuries after tree falls on home


TERRY, Miss. (WJTV) – A homeowner in Terry made it through the severe weather on Sunday. His home was destroyed after two large trees fell on his Old Jackson Road home.

Brian Alexander, the homeowner, said he and his daughter were inside the home during the storm. They were not injured. According to Alexander, there was no time to react.

“If you don’t have a plan to get your family safe and an emergency, get one. This house was made in 1970 of solid brick, and it saved our lives. If we had anything that was less substantial, we could have been flattened,” he stated.

Dispute the damage, Alexander says the house isn’t a total loss and he is looking to rebuild. A lot of the internal structure wasn’t damaged and a lot of the contents inside weren’t damaged either.

Brian says he’s looking at this storm as a blessing in disguise because he bought the house as a fixer-upper and all the projects he has been putting off, are now repairs.
