PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. - The threat of hurricanes is terrifying one Port Charlotte woman.

A utility wire in her backyard is cutting a tree in half! She said Florida Power and Light won't help her... until she called us.

"First of all, I'm afraid the branch is going to fall on my head, and second of all, if the branch falls it's probably going to take the guy wire and the hole pole down with it."

After we called Florida Power and Light, they sent one of their employees out to that home and took pictures. They plan on cutting that branch off that is being split by the guy wire.
