Tree falls on church

Members of Creator Lutheran Church, Bonney Lake, Wash., in January continued to repair extensive damage from a tree that came down during a November windstorm.

The tree smashed through the roof, breaking a beam and rafters and destroying much of the church's fellowship hall.

It broke several waterlines in the ceiling, sending water everywhere.

Fencing and playground equipment were damaged, and the preschool had to be temporarily moved.

The church was insured and a donation covered the deductible.
