Storms Cause Damage In White Pine After Sweeping Into East Tn From SE KY

 Saturday evening storms swept into East Tennessee and caused some damage in some areas.

Storms rolled into the area at about 6:00 p.m. and, while some parts of East Tennessee remained relatively quietly, others received a bit more damage.

Photos submitted from a viewer in White Pine said storms hit her home at about 6:30 p.m. and destroyed some property. Wind and rain tossed plants off of her porch and turned over furniture.

In one picture, a tree uprooted from the storms is shown laying across the roadway.

Yesterday's storms tore off the roof of her shed and nearly demolished the rest of the building.

One woman sent in photos of her mother and father-in-law's farm, Meadowview, located on Highway 113 in White Pine, which acts as a wedding venue as well. Though the property suffered some damage, the wedding venue itself was fine, the daughter said.
