We can help be better prepared by trimming trees off and away from our homes. Most of our local power companies are busy trimming limbs back from the power lines. We should take their advise. Falling trees are a huge part of damage concerns here. This video shows a Magnolia tree in need of some help before it causes more damage to the roof and beyond.
