WILSONVILLE, Ore. – A tree crashed through a house and landed on a woman in bed during the storm early Monday morning in Wilsonville.

Tualatin Valley Fire and Rescue tweeted that the woman was able to get free and drive herself to the hospital. She had some injuries, but was released from the hospital.

The woman's name was not released.

Damage to the house was extensive. The tree crashed through the roof in two back bedrooms. The tree also clipped a portion of a house next door.

Certified arborists at the scene said the tree, a 40-year-old Cottonwood, was rotten inside, and the windy conditions easily snapped it.

The strong wind and heavy rain caused thousands of power outages across the region Monday morning.
