A strong front pushed into the listening area late yesterday resulting in high winds, power outages and numerous trees down. According to the National Weather Service in Nashville, wind gust of 45 miles per hour was noted at the Crossville Memorial Airport and 41 miles per hour in Sparta. That resulted in some broken tree limbs and trees falling taking out power lines in numerous areas. According to Volunteer Electric, McMinn County saw the most outages followed by Overton, Bledsoe, Cumberland, Roane, Rhea, Meigs, Putnam and Fentress counties. Crews worked during the event in high winds and continue to work this morning to restore power. Officials say in Overton County, one motorist was injured when their vehicle hit a tree blown down on Hanging Limb Road.
