Wednesday’s storms blew away lives, houses — and some personal records.
Geologist Terry Davis lives on a ridge near downtown Knoxville. He trudged outside his home Thursday morning and found a document on his driveway. It was a mammogram from a clinic about 110 miles away, Chattanooga Imaging.
“I should let this lady know that personal information ... is scattered from there to Knoxville — and maybe further? — but I doubt they have phone, email or even power now,” Davis wrote in an email.
Hixson homeowner Clay Bolling, 77, had a similar find. As he sorted through insulation, roofing and other debris, Bolling spotted a bank deposit slip from Huntsville, Ala., and a black cowboy hat.
The deposit had a person’s name on it.
“I couldn’t believe it,” he said.
