Trees fall on Busti home

On Wednesday, torrential rain and winds uprooted two aged trees on a Busti property, leaving one crashed and splintered on the side of a home. Homeowners Gary and Cathy Melquist, who were out of town during the storm, returned to the 1974 Shadyside Ave. residence to discover their yard in tatters and their dog visibly shaken up inside. “It’s unbelievable what weather can do,” Cathy Melquist said. “We were blessed though … it could have been much worse.”
