Thursday marks 20 years since a series of destructive tornadoes ripped through East Tennessee.
One of the hardest hit communities was Lenoir City. A resident named Martha Heffner died in the storms. Multiple buildings and businesses were destroyed resulting in damages more than $2 million.
Loudon County Sheriff Tim Guider held the same position 20 years ago. He said he remembered it being a humid Sunday afternoon when the storm hit.
"We didn't have a lot of light to work with," he said.
