NEWPORT, Va. -

A 93-year-old woman who's house was damaged by falling trees Sunday is still in a hospital.  The woman's family says she needs oxygen and since there's no power at the house, she can't come home.

The house in the Newport area of Giles County was damaged, but did not collapse, Sunday when a strong storm snapped several trees.  Winds were estimated at 60 miles-per-hour.

Family members initially feared the house had collapsed.
