Here in N. AL near the TN state line, our schools closed at 1:00 due to these storms. A lot of rain and wind but luckily nothing worse. I’d rather the school officials exercise caution rather than risk an extra hour or two of classroom instruction in case of dangerous weather. This happens here at least 2-3 times a year and is a real zoo picking up the kids from school those days.

Upper part of Cherokee County here, 1/4 mile from N.C. Two funnel clouds have been reported in Forest City, a few miles up the road. Winds right now about 20 mph. Stay safe.

I am so confused, I am going back to the store to get more beer (and a couple of lottery tickets).

We got leaves and rain water, what else do I need?

A tornado hit the north end of the Chickamauga Dam in Chattanooga triggering a large accident among northbound cars coming off the bridge. I’ve got a brother who lives there one mile away and he got a good look at the storm.

Radar looks like the worse in your area is gone..stay safe...it appears that the Smoky Mts are splitting the storm in half..we have some real nasty cells coming up I-85 heading my way. It looks like the western half of the storm is really lighting up I-40 and I-75 near Knoxville clear down to near Rome Ga.

Hopefully the dropping night temperatures will significantly weaken the storms by the time they get into your area.

It looks like the storms wont reach that part of Virginia til tomorrow evening. Hopefully, the weather will be weaker by the time it gets there.

Thanks. Can’t get an answer at the house so I don’t know if they’ve hunkered down or evacuated.
