Tree into home on Oakwood Dr. Whitehall
WHITEHALL TWP., Pa. -

Whitehall Township Mayor Ed Hozza has a warning for his residents and everyone with large trees on their property -- don't go to the upper floors of your home.

Whitehall has had two large trees fall and crash into homes as a result of Hurricane Sandy.

The mayor is urging anyone who can to stay on their first floor or even their basement rather than the top levels of their home.

One woman was injured when a tree fell on her Oakwood Drive home.  There's no word on her condition.  No one was injured in Whitehall's other incident.
