A small tornado touched down in Roane County on Wednesday around 6:40 p.m, according to the National Weather Service.
Meteorologist Lyle Wilson said the tornado struck seven miles west-northwest of Loudon.
“The information that I have is it was 100 yards long,” Wilson said. “The path width was 20 yards wide.”
Wind speeds topped out around 70 mph, he said. The weather service usually sends a survey team to confirm a tornado touch down, but Wednesday’s was confirmed through other means.
