Heavy storms that roared through Tennessee Monday hit hard in Rockwood.
The storms started around 4 p.m. and brought high winds, hail, a downpour and lightning.
It also left about 4,000 Rockwood Electric Utility customers without power at the peak of the storm.
“That’s about one-fourth of our system,” General Manager Kendall Bear said.
Areas that saw a significant amount of outages were Eagle Furnace, South Rockwood and the mountain above Rockwood.
