High winds cause damage and power outages

High winds cause damage and power outagesA powerful storm front moved through the county last Tuesday, May 21st that produced damage and power outages. It came through a little before 3 p.m. causing schools to not run buses until it passed. Many were paying attention to the weather because of the massive F5 tornado that devastated Oklahoma the day before.
A large tree split down middle and fell on a Byrdstown residence in the city limits, covering the whole front of the home with branches and leaves. The Pickett County Road Department worked to cut and clear some roads due to fallen trees.
Power was restored before nightfall to the many Volunteer Energy Cooperative residents who were left without power for several hours.
