A Hill District man is looking for answers after he said Wednesday’s storm caused a massive tree to fall onto his property.
Henry King, who lives on Webster Avenue, said the tree came from the vacant lot next to his home.
According to King, the lot belongs to the city, so he called them for help.
“This tree done fell in my walkway and I called them about that a couple of days ago,” King said.
King told Channel 11’s Vince Sims that he’s upset because the tree is preventing him from leaving his home.
“If there is an emergency or something like that, I’m stranded. This is a fire hazard and all kinds of safety hazards,” King said.
A Public Works supervisor told Vince Sims that crews will clear the tree for public safety reasons, but they’re not sure who owns the property.
King said he’s just glad something is being done.
“I don’t have anywhere to turn,” King said.
