A Action Tree Service owner Kerry Kreider removes parts of a laurel oak tree on Monday afternoon that crushed a home in Holder on Sunday evening as heavy weather pummeled Citrus County. Kreider estimated the weight of the tree to be as much as 10,000 pounds and its height to have been around 75 feet. Several occupants were home at the time the tree crashed through the roof, but no serious injuries were reported.
Gusts pass with a gasp

Strong winds brought down trees and helped bring minor flooding to Citrus County’s coast as a severe thunderstorm rolled through on Sunday.

Westerly wind gusts of up to 30 mph began blowing in the early afternoon before a band of storms came across much of central Florida from the Gulf, according to Bay News 9 Meteorologist Josh Linker. Those winds lingered into Monday, when gusts around 20 mph were still felt.
