AUBURN, MASS. (WHDH) - A tree came crashing down on a home in Auburn on Monday as strong winds whipped the region.

The tree smashed through the roof of a home on Rochdale Street after 1 p.m., according to Auburn Police Chief Andrew Sluckis.

In a tweet, Sluckis said an elderly couple that lives in the home was “very lucky to escape injury.”

Sluckis also shared a photo that showed a broken ceiling beam and other significant damage.

The downed tree has since been removed.
