The Rutherford County Sheriffs Office reports that crews are helping in the Couchville Pike - Corinth Road area after early Saturday (11/18/2017) evening storms ravaged this community.
Rutherford County Fire and Rescue Chief Larry Farley tells NewsRadio WGNS, "There is substantial damage to homes. There was so much debris and electric poles blocking roadways that our crews had to walkin on foot just to survey the damage.We have cleared the scene, and Middle Tennessee Electric is now working to restore electricity to the homes."
Lisa Marchesoni with the Sheriffs Office said, "A preliminary assessment has been completed and there are no known injuries at this time. There has been some damage to buildings in the area that appear to be the result of falling trees. All other damage in the area at this point seems to be limited to trees and utility poles.
The impacted area is near Percy Priest Lake, between Long Hunter State Park and the Smyrna Airport.
Utility crews are in the area working to resolve the issues. Roadways are expected to be cleared and opened before midnight.
