WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Last week’s ice storm took down a historic tree at a Winston-Salem school.
Gary Callus, principal of St. Leo Catholic School, said the 150-year-old tree fell on Saturday during the ice storm.
On Wednesday, Callus sent FOX8 video of the tree coming down.
Callus said It was a hackberry tree and was recognized in 2009 by Treasure Trees of Forsyth County.
The Triad is now bracing for another ice storm.
A Winter Storm Warning goes into effect Wednesday night, and freezing rain is expected to arrive in the Triad after midnight.
“Once it begins, we will have a long-duration ice event with temperatures staying at or below freezing into the early afternoon,” FOX8 Meteorologist Emily Byrd said.
Parts of the Triad could see up to 1/2″ of ice.
