Our crews found some debris on top of a business at the intersection of Longwood and Franklin.

The storms also blew the windows out at a gallery at the intersection of Whitesburg and Longwood.

The large outage in the Bob Wallace, Triana Blvd. and Memorial Parkway area was repaired by 4:48 this morning. Lightning damaged a pole on 5th Street, causing the outage.
