A house on Paradise Drive in Hawaiian Paradise Park was hit hard by Iselle, along with the rest of the community. Several trees fell on the home leaving a gaping hole.
A family of three was sleeping in this house the night Iselle hit. The only thing that saved them -- they slept in a back room furthest away from the damage.
The family, which included a young child, were able to get out of the house without any injuries. However, the house has substantial damage.
The homeowner says four Albizia trees fell on the home crushing the roof. Despite all of the damage, the homeowner says he's lucky no one is hurt.
