There were reports of trees down, along with a few power lines, from the storms and heavy rain on Wednesday, Anderson County Sheriff’s Department Chief Deputy Mark Lucas said.
Several roads were impassable for a while due to high water, but on most, the water had receded as of Wednesday evening, Lucas said. Some roads could still have debris, he said Wednesday.
“There was one tree that fell on a mobile home, but no major damage and no injuries have been reported,” Lucas said.
The Little Ponderosa Zoo had severe flooding, but much of the water there had receded and all the animals are safe.
There were only one power outage still shown by Clinton Utilities Board in the Oliver Springs/Morgan County area as of Wednesday evening, Lucas said. Power lines were down along Knoxville Highway (State Route 62) near Oliver Springs in Morgan County, but the Oliver Springs Police Department reported that the repairs should be completed Wednesday evening.
“We are asking for everyone to please use caution and drive safely as there may still be standing water or other roadway hazards,” Lucas said.
