Crews continue to repair a Beaufort County home that was damaged when strong winds toppled a tree onto its roof.

According to Emergency Management Director John Pack, the tree fell onto the house on Bayview Street in Bayview, east of the town of Bath. It happened at about 4:04 p.m. Thursday, Pack said.

Pack told NewsChannel 12 the tree caused severe damage to the home's roof. But a structural engineer said the house can be fixed.

The couple who lives at the home is in Colorado, Pack said. No injuries were reported.

Pack believed straight-line winds caused the tree to topple.
