Scattered showers and storms could become strong to severe this afternoon into the evening. Primary threats are large hail and heavy rainfall causing flooding in poor drainage areas. Damaging winds are included as well and an isolated tornado possibility is very low but not eliminated.
2-26-06 – A Carter County home was destroyed by fire Sunday morning. Lone Grove firefighters were called to the scene on Texaco Road just before noon. It took firefighters about thirty minutes to get it under control. The home is a total loss.
Firefighters say a wood burning stove caused the blaze after it overheated. Three adults live in the home, but they were not there at the time of the fire.
The family says they do not have insurance and have no plans to rebuild.
