NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — As thousands of people continue to wait for their power to be restored after Sunday's storms, others deal with something even more stressful.

Saletta Holloway spent most of her day watching crews saw apart the large tree that fell on top of her home that afternoon. The tree smashed through the corner into her daughter's bedroom. Luckily, no one was home at the time.

Holloway said her daughter noticed on the home's Ring camera that several people were gathered outside. It turned out to be crews with Nashville Electric Service.

"Thank God she wasn't here," Holloway told NewsChannel 5. "I so appreciate the fact that she wasn't here."

Holloway couldn't help but utter her gratitude multiple times, even to the men removing the tree.

The tree came from her neighbor's yard, but luckily she has insurance that'll be taking care of damages. If someone doesn't have insurance, the homeowner who received the damage would still be responsible since this was an "act of nature" and the tree was in good shape. If there was proof that the tree was in poor condition and the homeowner raised concerns, then it could be a different story.

Holloway knows no one was at fault. Her main concern was that no one was hurt.
