A couple of hundred New Castle County residents are still without power Friday morning after a violent storm Thursday.

The storm brought heavy rain and strong winds that blew trees over and took out power lines.

A tree came slamming down onto Ethan Savage's home in Bellefonte. The teenager was home alone when it happened.

"I heard this really loud crash. It sounded almost like a door was slamming really, really hard," says Ethan.

Ethan's sister, Becca, was on her way to the grocery store when she found out.

"My neighbor called me and was like 'a tree fell into your house,' and I started panicking because I knew Ethan was home," she says.
