Serious damage!

I wonder if the insurer did insure Lamar ... :-)

I actually work for Lamar and I'm sure we insured nationally out of our corporate office....

That is a good line though! :-)

Nice pictures. One of our reporters is currently at a house fire in Hixson, TN this Saturday, due to a tree and powerlines falling on it about 30mins ago. Some nasty stuff for just short periods of time. I am sure the NWS is banging their heads as these are hard to see on radar and sometimes to late.

Darn, you guys got whacked. I think the worst we saw was flash flooding. Those storms dumped 1.59" of rain in just under an hour...while other area had upwards of 2.50" in under an hour. No warnings or advisories were issued, however. Morristown is pretty conservative in that concern. Heck, they're pretty conservative overall.

Thanks for the comment!
