A willow tree split and fell on Walt Quade's home in Northeast Portland. Luckily, there was no major damage, Quade said.

PORTLAND, Ore. – The willow tree behind Walt Quade’s house came down like a two-part novel Saturday.

The first chunk toppled into the back yard, missing the house. A few hours later, the rest of the tree fell onto part of the house.

Quade said he knew someday the tree would fall on his house, so he reinforced the roof and put the foundation deep underground.
