Tree Knocked Over in Winterville

A home in Winterville didn't escape Mother Natures high winds Friday night either. The home on Wedgewood Circle in the Devonshire neighborhood in the Pitt County town of Winterville lost one of its biggest tree when winds snapped the trunk into three pieces. Amazingly the homeowner said she slept through the entire thing, and luckily the wind pushed the tree away from the home as opposed to on top of it.
