Smoky Mountains Spring Snow Storm Packs Punch

Downed trees throughout the North Carolina and Tennessee Smoky Mountains cause significant property damage and power outages as the winds roared through the mountains and valleys yesterday.

More than 110,000 lost power - 80,000 in North Carlina alone before midnight and more than 15,000 have already been restored as crews are working around the clock clearing downed trees, replacing broken poles and restringing lines.

Be prepared for continuing high winds and possible freezing in high elevations and when driving watch for fallen branches.
