NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Weather officials say power has been restored to most homes affected by a strong storm system that swept through most of Tennessee over the weekend.

The worst hit area was probably in Middle Tennessee, where more than 19,000 residents went to bed without power Saturday night.

However, National Weather Service meteorologist Angie Lese in Nashville said Sunday that power had been restored to most of those homes.

Lese said there were several funnel cloud sightings on Saturday, but no reports of touchdowns.

Weather advisories for most of the state were canceled Sunday.
