The woman was inside of her Honda Civic during her lunch break when the tree fell as she was trying to move her car away from the trees.

"It was just a big boom and the car bounced and the windshield shattered," Carmen Bissoondial said as she described the tree crashing onto her car.

Bissoondial said the impact of the tree caused her to drop her phone and after she found it she called 911.

Rescue crews arrived and cut branches away from the passenger door so she could get out of the vehicle.

"I'm just happy I'm OK," Bissoondial said.
