Cleanup Begins from Overnight Storms

Thunderstorms that pounded Tennessee have moved over the mountains, but some scattered storms could redevelop Wednesday east of Nashville. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency reports no deaths or serious injuries, but has widespread damage reports from the Mississippi River onto the Cumberland Plateau. TEMA spokesman Dean Flenor says 19 homes were destroyed or damaged – six of them in Montgomery County. Utility crews were restoring customers’ electricity, but the Montgomery County schools let out five hours early because several schools had no power. Other school systems didn’t have classes because trees were down on roads. Among buildings damaged was the Milan City Hall in West Tennessee. No tornadoes were immediately confirmed, but straight line winds caused widespread damage in the state Tuesday night and early Wednesday.
