An afternoon storm that lashed Oak Ridge on Aug. 1 pounded parts of the city with one-inch-diameter hail.
Meteorologist Jessica Winton said the National Weather Service in Morristown received many reports of hail as big as a quarter, which is “kind of average” over East Tennessee.
Winton said the Weather Service received reports of a few trees down in Farragut from the storm, and one large tree down on the north side of Oak Ridge.
Winds gusted up to 43 mph in Oak Ridge during the storm.
Oak Ridge School Board member Dan DiGregorio took pictures of the hail on his deck and in his yard.
