Weather Story of The Day
Did you see the story and video coming out southeast Tennessee near the Ocoee River? A rock slide blocked  parts of Hwy 64. As they were cleaning it up, geologists asked the crews to move due to stability issues with the hillside. Moments later, a massive slide blocks the entire road and sends boulders into the Ocoee.
