Cherokee County did experience some rough weather overnight Saturday and early Sunday – however the most severe storms seems to stay to our south.
A Severe Thunderstorm Warning was issued at 6:33am on Sunday as strong thunderstorms were located along a line extending from near Tabor Road to near Hokes Bluff, moving at a rate of some 60 mph impacting the areas of Centre, Cedar Bluff, Gaylesville, Blanche, Sand Rock, Leesburg and others along that path. Wind gusts of up to 60 mph were expected with that warning.
A Tornado Watch was also issued until 9:00am with Wind Advisories being in effect as well.
Numerous trees were down across the county including Boundary Avenue in Cedar Bluff, in the 300 block of County Road 34, Highway 9 north of Cedar Bluff, and many other locations.
Damage was reported to about a half-dozen homes in the Rabbittown Road area of Glencoe in neighboring Etowah County as storms struck that area around 6:00am Sunday. Reports of damage in the Tidmore Bend area have also been coming in – fortunately it seems no one was injured.
