Special to the Sun, the image on top right by Summer Bowman pictures a tractor-trailer overturned by heavy winds on Sunnydale Road in the Camp Creek community. The other photo, also by Bowman, shows a home whose roof was partially ripped off by winds on Sunnydale.

Widespread damage from high winds raked South Greene Thursday afternoon and damage was still being assessed this morning by the county's road crews.

Between 20 and 30 roads in the area had been blocked, or partially blocked, by fallen trees and other debris, said County Road Superintendent David Weems.

At least 740 customers of Greeneville Light & Power System were without power at 4 p.m. Thursday, according to GL&PS general manager Bill Carroll.

Most of the heaviest wind damage appeared to be in the South Greene, Greystone, Camp Creek and Sunnyside areas, Weems said.

Strong winds were also being experienced in Greeneville.
