NEWPORT-Storm-related damages appeared to be minimal following a severe weather system passing through Cocke County late Thursday night and early Friday morning.

Newport Utilities Electric Manager Jimmy Robertson said outages were reported on Morningside Way, Deerfield Way, Welch Leek Way, and Daffodil Way, all off Airport Road in Bybee, Ball Way near Wilton Springs, and Clear Creek Road and Idle Way.

These combined outages affected 36 NU customers, according to Robertson.
