LAFOLLETTE, TN (WLAF) – Late Saturday night, in a radius around the Victory Community, is where a strong, likely severe, storm hit hardest beginning with downed trees, and that led from one thing to another according to Campbell County Road Superintendent Ron Dilbeck. “Our crews have been out all night, and some of this damage reminds me of the ’19 heavy rains and flooding,” said Dilbeck.
Cedar Creek, Alder Springs, Mill and Parker Roads are some of the hardest hit areas. Some roads were even blocked along with washed out driveways to homes.
“We’ve cleared tree after tree plus debris and mud in the roads, and there are places where six to eight inches of asphalt have been broken up and pushed. Culverts were even pushed out,” added Dilbeck.
