ABRAMS CREEK, Tenn. (WTVR) – Severe storms struck the Great Smoky Mountains in eastern Tennessee Thursday killing at least two people.

The cluster of severe storms developed Thursday afternoon in West Va. and moved due south into Tennessee. CBS 6 meteorologist Carrie Rose said the storms produced wind gusts between 60 and  70 miles per hour and a lot of lightning.

According to a Great Smoky Mountains National Park spokesperson, a woman was killed when a tree fell at a campground. The second victim, a man, died in a motorcycle crash.

Several other people were also hurt. It took hours for rangers to get to reach some of the storm victims.
