KENTWOOD, LA (WAFB) - It was a close call for twin 4-month-olds after a tree fell onto a house where they were sleeping inside.

It happened in the Kentwood area on Tuesday.

The baby girl and baby boy suffered some scratches and had a lot of dust around them, but otherwise they were fine.

"My daughter said she was in the kitchen," Vickie Avery, the twins' grandmother, said. "She had just laid the babies down and she heard a big boom. She thought the house was on fire because it was like smoke just rolled out of the bedroom and rolled all the way through the house, but actually, it was the dust from the ceiling, where it caved in."

Strong pop-up storms in the area produced high winds that snapped a tree and pushed it onto the house.
