Wednesday morning's wicked weather took down utility poles and power lines at the Morgan County/Roane County line.

Storms pushed the poles and lines onto Highway 62 near Oliver Springs.

The issue closed the highway in both directions.

TDOT says the issue was reported around 9:00 am, and the road was closed for just about two hours.

Drivers had to take an alternate county route to get around the small section of closed road.
