Storm destroys Head Start playground
Bledsoe County and Pikeville were spared any widespread major damage from weekend storms that produced deadly tornadoes in west Tennessee and neighboring states, but still left plenty of downed trees and blown debris.
One of two playgrounds at the Sequatchie Valley Head Start, located at the old Bledsoe County high school in south Pikeville, was completely destroyed in the storm. A large portion of a tree split, taking out the playground.
