Camp Creek Greeneville, TN Tornado Damage

Caption: For those that are covering the damage of the tornado that hit on 4/30/2011 in the Southern States but do not get news coverage outside of the damage done in Alabama covered on National news, this is for you. This damage was done in Camp Creek, a community in Greeneville, TN which was the hardest hit area of Greene County. There are 6 people who died in this small community. We are not normally in a tornado path. In fact, this is the second one in over 50 years. The community backs up to mountains but this storm jumped mountains which is also rare. The pictures here are areas that you are allowed in and not the worse hit area but as you see, no matter what your house was made of wood, bricks or tin, it spared no mercy to anyone. So far, this is the worse I seen, this storm area is about three miles from where I live. As I was buckled down in a safe area of my home, I knew it was closing in on the area. As I listened to the local weather on tv, it pinpointed out when and what areas most likely to be hit giving us residents a very accurate account with a probability of what towns and communities were going to have a tornado, our probability rating was a 69% which is extremely high, the weather also gave us times and paths of the storms. It traveled through mountain ridges and foothills,showing it would hit my area and within 4 minutes to go into Johnson City, TN which is 25 miles plus away, that is how fast the storm was traveling. The tornado that hit this area where these pictures were taken was an EF-3 tornado. Please donate to your local Red Cross items posted for all affected areas are going to need small items to get through daily life of cleaning up. Thank You!

About rivertramper


I live and manage 52 acres of land in beautiful NE TN just outside of downtown Erwin, TN. The cities you might recognize near me are Asheville, NC about 50 miles away. And Johnson City, TN which is about 18 miles away. As you will see from my pictures this area is absolutely beautiful and abounds with wild animals and scenic by nature. This land sits in a valley and is protected by the forces of nature. I also have Organic Brain Damage so I have taken to sharing my views of part of Erwin, TN via camera for I hardly get around by myself these days for my pain is strong and my memory weak along with so many other issues due to the disease itself. So, wunderland keeps me going on my land and the camera helps me share this area with you. Enjoy!
