    We drove through the Highland Lake community in Blount county about 1 p.m. today – Saturday. Appeared to be hundreds of trees down and power lines on the ground everywhere. Many homes were damaged with trees on roofs and rooftops peeled back. Several roads were closed. Odd thing was, no AL Power trucks anywhere.

    I have family in and around Oneonta. I haven’t been able to call them. Does anyone know the Wilsons? Andy or Jimmy Wilson? Are they and their families ok? I live in Northeast Ohio.
