A Glenwood woman who went shopping in Council Bluffs with her mother received some devastating news Saturday afternoon. The Omaha World-Herald reports Katie Davis received a call from Glenwood Mayor Kimberly Clark, who is also a Sergeant with the Mills County Sheriff’s Office. Clark told Davis a giant oak tree had fallen and crushed Davis’ home in the 500 block of North Vine Street. The house was a total loss.
The tree snapped just above the trunk, revealing a hollow section, and fell across the living room in the front of the house and on nearby vehicles. The tree came down as a thunderstorm moved through the area Saturday. The family was hoping their cat “Nala” made it out of the house, which will have to be torn down and rebuilt from scratch. The home was too dangerous to enter Saturday to look for the family pet.
