CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (AP) - The National Weather Service says it has confirmed a weak tornado hit near Clarksville on Monday.

The weather service said Tuesday the EF-1 twister occurred after 6 p.m. CDT just southeast of Clarksville with peak winds of 90 mph. A survey team found some roof and tree damage in the area where the tornado traveled about 3 ½ miles.

Survey crews on Tuesday were also inspecting damage from Monday’s storms in West Tennessee.

In southeast Tennessee, some school districts delayed school for a couple of hours due to heavy rain and high winds.

Officials said a few roads were closed in the area due to flooding, mud slides and downed trees. There were also reports of power outages.

No injuries were reported.
