Looking at the damage caused by a Karri tree which has fallen on the roof of Pemberton hospital, it’s hard to believe no-one was injured.
Picture: SES volunteer officer Matthew Guile surveys the damage caused by a Karri tree which fell onto the roof of Pemberton hospital.
The towering tree came down in the early hours of Tuesday morning, during wild storms with winds speeds of up to 70km/hr.
Thankfully no-one was hurt and the State Emergency Service was on hand to make the area safe and begin removing the massive tree on Tuesday afternoon.
While the fallen tree had gouged a hole in the roof and let in rain water, a WA Country Health spokesman said normal hospital service had not been disrupted.SES and WA Country Health staff were deployed to make the area safe and a further assessment on the damage would be made once the tree was removed, he said.
