Local Storm Damage Report

From the NWS-Nashville reports...
.....At 2:30 pm on Friday, June 13, 2008, strong thunderstorm-induced winds caused damage to a manufacturing plant wall 3 miles South of Sparta, TN.
.....Nearly 200 linear feet of the wall was blown out crushing several vehicles on the outside of the plant.
.....Location is (lat) 35.89N and (long) 85.47W.....reported by White County (Sparta) Emergency Management...

Unofficially, I am told the wind lifted the roof, which caused the wall to collapse.

Sparta, TN is 20 miles south of my location.

Also, a reader on my blog reported it was the Thomas Industries facility. Thomas is a lighting fixtures plant in Sparta. *Company History*
