NEWARK, Del. (CBS) – Monday night’s storms packed quite a punch. A Delaware woman says she’s lucky to be alive after wild winds knocked a tree onto her home.

Barbara Morris lives in on Squirrel Lane in the Elan of Huntingdon Hills neighborhood in Newark and she says she was trapped in her kitchen by that fallen tree.

Morris says she was on the deck barbequing when she heard an enormous boom.

“Got in just inside the door when the ceiling came down on me, the tree came down on the deck, wiped out the deck and I was pinned under the ceiling. It just pushed me down like this right on top of my head,” Morris said.
