A Gwynedd hotel owner has told how a massive tree crashed through a conservatory roof and missed his family accommodation by just two feet.
The lucky escape happened as communities across Wales were rocked by another day of stormy weather.
This picture by Gwynedd photographer Erfyl Lloyd Davies clearly illustrates the Cadwgan Hotel's near miss as an enormous tree fell onto the adjacent conservatory roof.
Owner Karen Greenfield says the tree missed the family's living accommodation by just two feet.
A giant 150-year-old tree has come crashing down on a hotel conservatory in Gwynedd, North Wales, after being battered by strong winds.
Adam and Karen Greenfield, who own the Cadwgan Hotel in the village of Dyffryn Ardudwy, were in bed watching the James Bond film 'You Only Live Twice' when the tree fell - narrowly missing the hotel itself.
Karen told ITV News: "We thought it was an earthquake at first - it shook the whole building.
"It was dark outside so we switched all the lights on and came down to have a look.
"It must have missed our living accommodation by about two feet. It scraped our window and fell onto the conservatory roof.
"The tree has come down right in the middle of the front entrance so we can't trade at the moment. We're working to get things back to normal as soon as possible.
"There were no guests here at the time the tree fell and thankfully nobody was hurt."
A family of four were saved from their farmhouse near Llanbedr in south Gwynedd at the height of yesterday's storm. Seven members of the Ogwen Valley Mountain Rescue Team took part in the rescue.
Today Chris Lloyd of the Ogwen team said it was an example of how trained volunteers can help the emergency services at times of great need.
An orphaned otter cub is making good progress at an RSPCA wildlife centre, after being rescued from the bank of an estuary in Gwynedd.
A member of the public heard loud squeaking noises while out walking near the village of Talsarnau on Boxing Day and found the young cub on the bank.
The RSPCA says the cub was becoming increasingly distressed and as there was no sign of his parents returning, he was taken into the care of a local vet. He's now being cared for at the RSPCA Stapeley Grange Wildlife Centre in Cheshire.
Rob Scrivens, otter rehabilitation co-ordinator at Stapeley, said: "This youngster is around 9-10 weeks old and is a really feisty character, which is very good sign. He is currently eating well and seems bright and healthy.
"It is unclear why he was separated from his parents but the recent bad weather could be to blame."He added that once the cub is big and independent enough to fend for himself he will be released back to the wild.
RSPCA inspector Mark Roberts said: "This little otter has somehow become separated from his mother and could have died without intervention.
"We would like to remind people before touching any baby wild animal, we always advise monitoring first to check that it is genuinely orphaned or abandoned, as mum is often nearby and waiting for you to leave."
Power has been restored to all properties cut iff after strong winds on Boxing day.
Anglesey and Gwynnedd were the worst affected areas.

Thousands of homes and businesses in north Wales have been without power today after gale force winds and heavy rain battered the region. Elsewhere in Wales, the weather affected roads and the railways as Alexandra Lodge reports.
