CROSSVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Officials say some damage was left behind from strong storms that moved through parts of East Tennessee overnight Thursday. Tornado warnings in both Cumberland and Fentress counties were also prompted during that time.
Most of that damage was reported in Cumberland County, where the emergency management agency says there was damage to seven homes in the Lawson Road area of Crossville. No injuries have been reported as of Thursday.
Fentress County saw some flooding damage, where an often-used road, Clear Creek Lane, was washed out by floodwaters. Residents shared with WATE 6 News crews that it was one of the craziest things they had ever seen.
Emergency management officials say they will be out in that area later Thursday to check for any additional damage. The threat of flooding still remains and several roads have been reportedly washed out.
Cumberland County Schools were on a 2-hour delay due to the excessive rain and affected roads.
