Sustained winds over 60 mph pounded Warren County on Thursday night with the brunt of the storm hitting the Newtown area.“We got over 90 calls during the storm,” said 911 director Chuck Haston, noting the first warnings were issued around 6 p.m. for the fast-moving storm. “We had trees on houses, trees on cars, power lines down and sparking, and trees across the road.”The damage comes from straight-line winds as the National Weather Service has not confirmed a tornado.Warren County Emergency Management is still trying to compile the numerous damage reports, most having to do with tree limbs causing damage to structures. The main point of damage appears to be around Warren County Memorial Airport area in a path running from Old Shelbyville and Laws Road across Nashville Highway down Spring Valley Road toward the Kandlewood subdivision.
