Cleanup After Woodfin Storm Topples Trees

Chainsaws roared after a Labor Day storm toppled trees in the Woodfin area.

At Log Cabin Motor Court, a crew spent the morning cleaning up debris.

"We had about five trees total that was down," says owner John Maltry. "We had to clear a path so people could leave."

The pine trees date back generations. One of them fell on top of the roof of the office cabin, which was built in the '30s.

"Oh it was just scary," says housekeeper Chasity Wilson. "The wind was blowing, and I couldn't even see up there, everything was turning black. And these trees just started falling like crazy."

Office manager Susie Waldrup had just left the cabin to check on her car, when the trees started falling.

"I heard a big crack," she tells us.

Most of the Labor Day weekend guests had already checked out when that afternoon storm hit.

Maltry says the roof of the office cabin will likely have to replaced. He estimates the damage at around $10,000.

Despite the damage, he says business will resume Tuesday afternoon.
