A Chevy Chase, Maryland family will be sleeping elsewhere on Saturday night after a large tree limb fell on top of their home.
The house, located on Leland Street near the intersection with Woodbine Street and a few blocks east of Connecticut Avenue, was the scene of a significant tree removal effort on Saturday afternoon.
The limb fell from a large tree in the front yard and crashed through the roof before noon, leaving a wide gash.
