VIDEO: Tree Uproots During Hurricane Sandy and Takes About One-Quarter of Yard Sod Up with It

VIDEO: “Hurricane Sandy ripping up my tree” by Mathew Weinschreider.

Mathew Weinschreider noticed the lawn shaking and the sounds of roots straining and snapping, so he grabbed his video camera and captured the large tree as it was uprooted by Hurricane Sandy winds.

The tree narrowly missed causing major damage to a neighbor’s house in Huntington, Long Island near the Cold Harbor Springs Laboratory — a famous private, non-profit institution with research programs focusing on cancer, neurobiology, plant genetics, genomics and bioinformatics.
