Episode Narrative Organized convection developed over the Southern Appalachian region in the presence of a very moist and unstable air mass. Relatively strong winds through a deep portion of the atmosphere helped to produce an extensive outflow boundary resulting in numerous downed trees and significant structural damage to homes and businesses. The powerful thunderstorm complex resulted in four fatalities and 9 injuries.
Event Narrative Numerous trees were reported down across the county.
