'Table needed cleaning anyway!' Texas storm blows garden furniture into pool


CCTV footage shows the moment a glass table and a couple of chairs were swept into a family's swimming pool in Dallas, Texas.

Filmed on Sunday (June 16), a storm passing through the area blew the table and chairs straight into a swimming pool.

Gretchen, who caught this on camera, told Newsflare: "I was at home alone with my one-year-old son when the storm came through. We were sitting on the couch near the windows overlooking our backyard when the storm hit.

"I grabbed my baby and we went into the pantry the second I saw the table move because I knew at that point the storm must be dangerous.

"I was super worried we were going to have to drain the pool when I went out and checked the damage but couldn't tell right away as the table had sunk all the way down to the deep end of the pool beyond my reach.

"Luckily it did not shatter though. There were trees down all over our neighbourhood, it was a mess over the next six hours with people coming in to remove all the debris."

The homeowner posted the video on Reddit with the caption: "Well the table needed to be cleaned anyway!"
