Cactus falls on Arizona home

Sept. 10, 2012 at 2:16 PM

MESA, Ariz., Sept. 10 (UPI) -- An Arizona couple said their house was damaged when a 30-foot-tall cactus on their property broke apart and pieces struck their home.

The Lindstroms of Mesa said the saguaro cactus broke apart Saturday morning and cost $3,000 to remove, KSAZ-TV, Phoenix, reported.

The couple said two arms of the cactus hit the shed outside of their home before hitting the house itself. They said the damage includes a smashed computer and ripped-out wiring for their telephone and cable.

They said the body of the cactus stayed upright by leaning against a telephone pole.

The Lindstroms said Friday's monsoon may have contributed to the cactus breaking apart.
