PORTLAND -- A man in Southeast Portland has a big cleanup job ahead of him after Sunday night s storm.

Henry Linebaugh said high winds knocked down a giant tree into his house on Hazel Avenue. He said he heard a creaking noise following by a loud bang. He hasn t slept since the tree landed on his roof.

Linebaugh isn t sure how much damage is done but is happy his home is still standing.

I m proud of this old house, he said. A plastic house like that over there wouldn t have stood.

Linebaugh said he plans to use a tow truck to pull the tree off his house.
