There are WIDESPREAD reports of storm damage all over Tennessee this morning from a fast-moving squall line that raced through last evening. Very interesting this line didn't have ANY lightning associated with it...straight line winds...alot of shear markers on doppler radar last night, but NO (as of yet) confirmed tornadoes...that may change later as the NWS does Storm Damage Asessments....will let you all know.

I've posted links to the various reports here

We've got one of our billboards down in Cookeville. Should be able to get some pictures and will post it later.

Through my job, I can report that we've had lots of problems from Memphis, through Chattanooga, Knoxville all the way to the northeast corner of the state and beyond. Lots of downed trees. Co-worker reports 200-year old oak down in his yard.

I'm glad I slept through it.

4 trees down at my place. Hardeman county. 1 hit my sisters house. I think 2 of the trees were pretty dead anyway. Sadly, my above ground pool [i have 6 grandkids] is now across the road!

Hope all are safe and unharmed in Hardeman. I have Taylor relatives in Hardeman and Madison Counties, a sister and other relatives in Carroll County, a sister N law in Nashville and husband has lots of relatives in Adair CO. KY. Also relative in Fulton CO KY. Praying they all are safe.

We had some cold temps and a bit of a wind here in the Tri-Cities (which basicaly includes Greeneville too), but nothing like these folks further west are describing. Be safe everyone!

Lost one large cedar that could be seen from the house. I haven't been able to look at all of our property yet. I have no doubt that other trees are down.

This storm we didn't have any damage, but the one that hit before that - what 3 weeks or so ago?? - took down a 20+ foot pine in the front of the property. Hated that tree anyway. Had really hoped this storm would finish it off as it's leaning on two of my younger oaks. I don't want to lose them. Guess I'll be spitting out the money to have the darn thing cut down.

The wind howling through the trees at one point sounded like a cat though. My daughter and I both at the same time sat straight up and said 'is that a cat?'. Was really odd sounding.
