Severe weather wreaked havoc in Tennessee on Saturday resulting in damaging winds and flooding.

Thousands were left without power following Saturday night's storms. Nashville Electric Service and Middle Tennessee Electric crews worked in the overnight hours and throughout Sunday to restore power.

On Sunday morning more than a thousand people were still without power.

In Brentwood, Hillview Drive off of Old Hickory Boulevard was blocked off after several trees were uprooted, striking power lines and leaving several homes in that area in the dark.

Williamson County was one of the harder hit areas. During the height of the storm, Middle Tennessee Electric reported some 10,000 homes were left without power. Crews were able to restore the majority by around 10:30 p.m.

Carothers Parkway in Franklin, twisted street signs and an uprooted fence were left lining the way.

In downtown Nashville, high winds blew a wall of a building that's under construction on Lindsley Avenue and Academy Place.

The Nashville Fire Department and NES crews were on the scene Sunday morning. The wall struck a temporary light pole for the building.

The Nashville International Airport asked travelers to seek shelter in the airport's bathrooms and away from all windows shortly after 9 p.m. on Saturday.

An entire wall was blown out of a building located at the intersection of Whites Creek Pike and Dickerson Road due to damaging winds.

OEM kept the roadway blocked until Metro Public Works was able to get the debris off the road.

No one was injured when the wall came down.
