CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Downed trees were widespread across the Charlotte area from the recent severe weather.

NBC Charlotte received a security video of a tree crashing through a front porch in Dilworth. You can see the tree coming down.

Homeowners say the city was supposed to replace a drain near the tree but couldn't make it in time.

Also in south Charlotte, strong winds took down a massive tree Thursday afternoon, smashing an SUV. Thankfully, the owner of the vehicle was not inside at the time.
