This week, on March 12, marked the 20th anniversary of one of the biggest weather events Roane Countians have ever witnessed.
What they may not realize is the impacts of the Blizzard of 1993 are with them to this day.
State Sen. Ken Yager, who spent more than two decades as Roane County’s executive, was in charge at the time. Yager, who had just started his third of six terms, remembers the event well.
“We had heard days in advance — the perfect storm is about to come,” he said.
