TRACY (CBS13) — Eight families are still waiting to get back into their homes after a tree fell on their apartment complex last month.

“About 10 p.m. at night, I heard a boom. It felt like a bomb hit.”

And since that boom, Alisa Laverne’s life has been turned upside down. A giant tree came crashing down on a Tracy apartment building more than a week ago.

After the residents were evacuated, management of Tracy Village Apartments removed the tree, but the eight families affected weren’t allowed to go home.

Laverne said she was told damage caused by the tree possibly aggravated asbestos inside.

After three days in a hotel courtesy of the Red Cross, Laverne and her two young children are now calling their SUV home, sleeping on friends’ couches at night.

She says the complex’s management is refusing to help them out.
