Wild weekend weather

Trees fell across state and county roads across Cumberland County Saturday morning as a series of storms swept across the Cumberland Plateau. County road crews, firefighters and local residents teamed together to clear the roadways. The fallen trees caused multiple reports of loss of power. Above, Daniel Newsome mans a chainsaw as he and Andy Asborne cleared a down tree blocking one lane of traffic on Cherry Branch Rd. between Peavine Rd. and the intersection with Shorty Barnes Rd. No serious injuries were reported in the weather incident.
