Power outages and trees down in Sevier County Tennessee

Last night severe thunderstorms and hail storms pounded Sevier County Tennessee dumping plenty of rain and knocking down trees.

Currently the Your Smokies office in Sevierville just had power restored only minutes ago as we ready ourselves to survey damage in the national park and surrounding areas.

Drivers are asked to be very cautious as we expect trees, limbs and branches to be in roadway and fallen wet leaves may also present a hazard to drivers.

Hikers should also expect to possibility of newly downed trees to create potential hazards on hiking trails and we suggest allowing a day or 2 before taking a horse out in the park so that the trails can be surveyed for damage.
