Hail Reported From Storms In Putnam County

We missed the flooding from two weeks ago, but local weather spotters say hail was reported Saturday afternoon during severe storms in Putnam and Warren counties. According to the Warren County Sheriff's office, several trees were knocked down by strong winds, but no major damage was reported. Authorities also reported hail about 1 inch in size east of McMinnville. Eyewitnesses from the Cookeville area reported pea-sized to marble-sized hail there. Officials say another severe storm that fired up briefly on Sunday morning also caused some minor damage.
