A fallen tree brought an abrupt awakening to a Wetmore Avenue homeowner.
Mike Mele decided to take a nap in his basement because he didn’t trust the trees during the winds being generated by Hurricane Sandy. Good thing, because one of those trees fell and hit the house.
“I thought it was thunder and lightning … it made a hell of a noise,” Mele said.
Nobody was injured, fortunately.
Meanwhile, the wind blew out a storefront window at Anais, a women’s clothing store on South Street, around 5 p.m.
Police officers Molnar and Rispicci were on the scene quickly, securing the other window with masking tape as firefighters made their way to the scene.
