WASHINGTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. -- A 94-year-old Washington Township woman was doing laundry in her basement Monday afternoon when a backyard tree snapped in half and smashed through her kitchen and living room, responders said.

The woman, who's lived in the Taylor Avenue home for nearly 60 years, wasn't injured, they said.

She told responders that she ordinarily sits in the kitchen but fortunately wasn't there when the mishap occurred.

"Her attic is now in her kitchen and living room," a neighbor said.
