LAWRENCE COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) — The National Weather Service confirms an EF-0 tornado struck the Five Points area of Lawrence County on Wednesday.
According to officials, the storm measured at 85 miles per hour between 5:28 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. Officials believe the rest of the storm damage looked like it was caused by straight-line winds, except for the damage near the Giles and Lincoln County line, which could have also been caused by a tornado. The National Weather Service is still surveying that area.
Rear-flank downdraft winds caused damage on Gunter Ridge Road, with estimated wind speeds measured around 90-95 mph.
