A brief tornado warning came and went on Thursday afternoon., and only minor damage was reported from a brief, severe storm.

The tornado warning, in effect for approximately 30 minutes, was lifted soon after 4 p.m.

In downtown Greeneville, trees were reported down in the roadway on West Summer Street near the Greene County Schools Central Office and on Leonard Street near Highland Elementary School.

Town of Greeneville Public Works Director Brad Peters said crews were able to clear the roads Thursday afternoon.

Power lines were down near the intersection of Sinking Springs Road and McDonald Road in western Greene County, 911 dispatcher Seth Spradlin said Thursday.

Greeneville Light & Power System reported seven cases of outages, affecting fewer than 800 customers.

GL&PS Superintendent of Engineering and Operations Chuck Bowlin said that the largest incident, an outage at the Eastview substation, resulted in a loss of power for 586 Greeneville customers for less than 10 minutes.

The other cases affected less than 200 customers and power was restored by 6 p.m.

"We fared pretty well," Bowlin said.

GL&PS General Manager Bill Carroll agreed, saying, "it was relatively mild, all things considered. We dodged a bullet."
