Powerful storms that struck at several states left at least 10 homes completely destroyed in Tennessee — though the good news is nobody was reported injured or dead.

It’s still not clear if tornadoes were to blame for all of the devastation, The Associated Press reported.

“Tennessee has deployed some Tennessee Highway patrol strike teams in some counties in east Tennessee, closing off roads,” said Dean Fiener with the state’s Emergency Management Agency in Nashville, AP reported. “You don’t want people wandering into areas with damage.”

About seven of the 36 counties in eastern Tennessee reported degrees of destruction, from wrecked homes to downed trees to power losses.
