Pete Leapline found out his neighbor's giant pecan tree smashed into his work van when severe weather blew through. All of his tools were inside.

Pete's anxious to see what he can salvage.

"I'm pretty distraught about the whole thing. I've got jobs going on. You know, and you have to first worry about getting this all cleaned up," he said.

Pete's neighbor thought maybe a tornado had hit. That giant tree caused some damage to her home too.

"I'm just glad it didn't, you know, fall on us. And with our grandson in there," Cox said.

Lavern's next call was to her insurance company.

And that's not the only storm damage in the south Tulsa neighborhood.

Just down the street, a News On 6 crew spotted another giant branch that had smashed a red pick-up truck, causing another big mess for someone to clean up.
