As the title suggests, we’ve made up some of our rain deficit in a somewhat “severe” manor.
A series of thunderstorms over the past days have generated heavy rains in addition to hail and strong winds.
Such an event occurred in Lawrence County, TN on Friday.
High winds in the Leoma community damaged an apartment building by ripping a portion of the roof off the structure.
Luckily no injuries were reported and the damage was minor enough that no one had to be relocated from the housing unit.
