I just heard on the scanner that there is a funnel cloud spotted in the next county to my east (from the storm that came through here earlier). I hope everyone there is ok.
I posted that Friday night, and here is a followup (the action was ~ 15 miles from here):
Associated Press - October 12, 2009 10:55 AM ET
MORRISTOWN, Tenn. (AP) - The National Weather Service has confirmed tornado touchdowns during storms Friday in Marion, Monroe and McMinn counties.
A report by meteorologist Tim Troutman in the Morristown office said assessment teams confirmed there was evidence that EF0 tornadoes touched down. None caused any injury or structure damage.
An EF0 is the weakest designation for tornadoes.
The weather service said a tornado near Jasper traveled two miles on the ground.
Another near Haletown traveled on a short distance.
A tornado near Englewood in Monroe County was on the ground for only a brief time as was one near Niota.
The wind speeds in the tornadoes was 70-80 mph.
