Storm does damage in Pickett County

Storm does damage in Pickett CountyThe recent storms that hit Tennessee hard caused damage in Pickett County. Volunteer Energy Cooperative reported fewer than 200 outages total during the two days of high winds and power was restored within several hours.
According to Pickett County Road Superintendent Jimmy Cope, many roads were flooded and workers had to remove debris and fix gullies. There were also some roads which were washed out and had to be repaired.
