DELAND, Fla. (FOX 35 ORLANDO) - Cleanup is underway at a senior living facility in DeLand after Hurricane Dorian. Winds knocked a massive tree onto a cottage at the Good Samaritan Society on McDonald Avenue.
A representative said the person living in the home was not hurt and the home received minor structural damage. Mary Rau was next door in her parents' cottage when she heard the tree fall.
"We heard a big crash and a thump. And looked at each other and said, that's gotta be a tree," she said.
After that, she quickly checked on the woman living inside.
"I called rescue, and they came out and checked on her, and she was good," she explained.
Fearing flooding issues like during Irma, about 150 people from the location in Kissimmee were evacuated to the DeLand location. The company said the tree incident didn't interfere with plans to move them back to Kissimmee -- efforts that it said would start Wednesday evening. Back in DeLand, Rau grateful damage from Dorian wasn't worse.
"Everything is well over here I think and not a car hit so everybody's safe and that's what counts," she said.
