Weakened Ike brings high wind, minimal damage as it passes Tennessee

 

The remnants of Hurricane Ike swept a wide curve west of  Montgomery County before racing northeast and away. Along the way, though, its winds, gusting up to 60 mph in the Clarksville area, whipped a flurry of branches, pine cones and other debris into yards and across roadways. Rainfall from Ike was minimal here as well.

One unlucky homeowner on Powers Street fared less well than most, as mature tree had a huge portion of its limbs torn off by Ike’s windpower.
