SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) -

With just two days before Christmas, an ArkLaTex family is waiting on repairs to be made after a tree crashed through the home she rents in Shreveport during Thursday's storm.

"After the tree fell on my house, the ceiling fell on them, so we had to dial 911," says Lashandra Morris.

The accident caused parts of the ceiling to fall right onto her daughter and two grand children sleeping in bed.

Morris says she called her landlord the day it happened and the company came out to remove the tree and place a tarp on the roof. She says since Thursday she has not heard from the company.

"It was suppose to be fixed yesterday, and i still haven't heard from them," says Lashandra Morris.

When we contacted GWH Properties, Inc. an employee with the company said that the damage should have been fixed by now, and that they did not know that the hole was still there. The employee declined an on camera interview, or to schedule one with the owner of the house, but she did promise that the damage would be fixed starting early Monday morning.

According to the Louisiana.gov website in Civil Code 2691 your landlord is responsible for making repairs unless the tenant is responsible for the damage. Also, If the landlord does not make repairs in a reasonable time frame, the tenant cam make the repairs and demand the money back.
