Tree damages rural home

A mature cottonwood tree blew over in the wind on Oct. 13 and fell on the home of Frank and Donna Bemis, northeast of Choteau. The heavy limbs damaged the roof and siding and one limb (pictured below) speared through the roof of the house, going through the floor in one of the bedrooms. A complete story is featured in the Oct. 21 print edition of the Choteau Acantha.
