Large trees like these on Walden Street fell in several places in historic downtown Harriman after a short storm with powerful winds blew through Saturday night.
Saturday winds take out trees, leave over 7,000 without power

It was brief, but high winds that breezed through Saturday evening did quite a bit of damage, knocking down trees and leaving many areas without power.

Roane County Central Dispatch had 60 calls related to the high winds, most of which were on their non-emergency number and concerned trees across roadways.

“No one was injured due the storm. No injuries were reported to us that I was made aware of,” said Chuck Hiatt, Operations Chief of Office of Emergency Services.
