(WBIR-East Tennessee) High winds, heavy rain and hail caused scattered damage around East Tennessee on Thursday evening.

There are no reports of injuries related to the storms, but clean-up has begun.

The National Weather Service (NWS) in Morristown said the most significant damage can be found in the eastern part of Sevier County.

Near there in Cocke County, multiple downed trees littered the Moore's backyard.

Shelby Moore said the storm passed through quickly.

"My dad goes, 'Oh I'll tell you when to worry. It's not yet.' And then the tree starts like falling over and she [Shelby's sister] goes, 'Can we worry yet?' and he said, 'Yeah, let's go get in the hallway,'" Moore said.

The Cocke County Sheriff's Office said if a tornado did touch down, it was probably in the Moore's backyard.

A downed power line held up traffic on TN-339 East in Sevierville.

More downed power lines were found in the Seymour area of Chapman Highway.

In North Knoxville on Bellview road, a tree fell onto a carport.

In Tellico Village, a tree fell on Debbie and Tom Gerlach's home.

The couple's friend, Janis Bloome, came to the house after it happened.

"Tom told her (she was out shopping) 'Oh, a few branches fell on the house' and Debbie goes, 'Are there any leaks?' And he's like, 'No not really.' And she gets home and she's like, 'Holy... whatever,'" Bloome explained.

The NWS said someone will survey the damage on Friday and determine if any of that damage was caused by a tornado.
