Anne Arundel County Fire Department officials say that a father has died after Monday evening’s severe weather brought down a large tree and damaged a home.
The tree fell on a home located in the 800 block of Holly Drive West near Annapolis, Maryland, according to first responders.
Officials said that four people were in the home when the tree fell and several trees were damaged around the home.
One person inside the house met crews outside in the pouring rain while the other three — a mother, father and their child — remained trapped inside the home.
The child was not seriously hurt, but the dad died after the tree crashed into a bedroom. The child’s mother is still in the hospital and her injuries are life-threatening.
One person was hurt when a tree fell on a house in Severna Park. No other information was available about that incident.
