Roane county did not see any major damage to the area due to any severe weather, but Cumberland County did report a couple of tornadoes spotted there and in Scott County as the front came through late Sunday giving us much needed rain

Many people had their Sunday Afternoon abruptly interrupted just before 5 pm yesterday by sudden alerts from the National Weather Service indicating a couple of tornados that had popped up in the Crossville Area. Even more people were surprised as they happened to look towards the skies northwest of Crossville and see a swirling cloud. There was isolated damage as a home under construction on Bailey Road was flattened and a truck trailer at The Crossville Ceramics plant near Genesis Road was toppled over.
