(RNN) – Winds from Hurricane Irma downed a tree in a yard in Tampa pulling the lawn up high enough for a woman to almost stand under.

An image captured a woman kneeling, and then standing on Tuesday nearly upright under the lawn. The lawn was lifted almost intact when the tree fell into a home’s front yard.

Powerful Hurricane Irma left millions without power across the Sunshine State, and is blamed for several deaths.
