HIGH POINT, N.C. -- A number of downed trees along Hickswood Road damaged property and left several without power.

“It knocked me out of bed," said Suzanne Leonard, who was taking a nap when the storm came through. "Water started pouring through the roof."

Several trees came down on her home, leaving holes in the roof. One sent a limb just a few feet from Leonard's husband.

EMS believes powerful straight-line winds caused the damage, leaving many in the dark but thankfully safe. "We are all OK," said Leonard. "That's what matters."

The American Red Cross is assisting the family.
