Pine tree root ball taller than tree

Home on 17C looses several trees

At first glance, this home on 17C in Owego, appears to have had at least two trees downed onto the power lines in front of the house. Looking closer at the end of the driveway is an immense pine tree. The root ball that came up when it fell, is much taller than the car. What looks like two trees is actually one very large trunk. The top of the tree went into the home, but it was not visible if damage was done to the home. The property directly across the street also lost several trees.
