Storm displaces Ensley couple from home

ENSLEY, Ala. (WIAT) — Ronnie and Bennie Williams can’t stay in their home on 17th Street Ensley tonight because a tree fell on top of their house and damaged their roof at about three Friday morning.

The tree broke through the inside ceiling. Rain poured into the couple’s home, damaging their floor, furniture and belongings.  Bennie Williams tells us there was about an inch of water inside their home at one point.

The couple spent the morning cleaning up and making calls trying to get someone to get the tree off their house.

There were three other homes just on their side of the street that also had trees blown onto them during the storm overnight.
