Andrea Bratton of Afton sent The Sun this photo of trees downed onto her house and a pickup parked next to it during the Saturday storms.

About 25 trees came down Saturday night in Greene County on or near roadways as showers and storms pushed through the area, said Heather Sipe, interim director of the Greene County Office of Emergency Management.

The Greene County Highway Department removed debris from at least five roads.

At the peak of Saturday night’s storm, 703 Greeneville Light & Power System customers were without power. Electricity has since been restored to most customers.

Most of the trees came down in the west and northwest sections of the county, according to road Superintendent Kevin Swatsell.

Winds in the mountain sections of Greene County ranged from 25 to 40 miles per hour, with higher gusts reported in some areas.

Sunday’s National Weather Service forecast for Greene County calls for decreasing clouds and a high temperature of about 61 degrees, with increasing clouds Sunday night and a low of 44 degrees into Monday morning.
