Tropical Storm Lee brought some much-needed rain to Roane County last week.
“The rain has actually really helped us,” said West Roane County Fire Chief Charlie Redwine. “I was getting very concerned because we couldn’t have stood much more” dry weather.
“It keeps us from worrying so much,” he added.
His volunteer department responded to a few vehicle crashes due to the rain, but nothing serious, Redwine said.
