Strong storms rolled through Coffee County on Wednesday afternoon around 5pm. The storms damaged several structures, blew down trees and heavy limbs plus over an inch of rain fell. The Manchester area saw many homes and businesses lose electricity, cable and telephone service for several hours, including WMSR.
One of dugouts at the Westwood Middle School softball field lost its roof when it was blown off, leaving it lying on the playground fence at Westwood Elementary School. A tree was split in half on the playground at College St Elementary.
Some homes in the area received damage as trees and limbs fell on or near houses.
At Dave King and Fred Deadman parks in Manchester a lot of debris had to be cleaned up by city workers on Thursday.
