GA – NC Severe Storm Damage


Appalachian Services™

The recent winter storms have left the area from Springer Mountain, GA through Tellico Gap, NC and on to Newfound Gap in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park with severe damage.  Trails are washed out and numerous trees have been uprooted.  The tops of trees have also been broken off.  These broken trees pose a special danger called “Widow Makers”, limbs or tree trunks hung up in another tree which can fall unpredictably upon hikers passing below.  Please exercise extreme caution while hiking in these areas.
