What was possibly the largest oak tree in Anderson County was downed during Monday night's storm.
The tree fell beside the home of Renita and Danny Crouch on Highway 62.
Tuesday morning, Renita Crouch's aunt, Helen Bowman, was at the home and recounted hearing about the historic tree succumbing to the storm.
"Renita said Danny looked out the door and said, 'Oh, no, there goes the big oak tree.' " Bowman said. "She called me this morning and said the big oak tree was gone. Renita really thought a lot of that tree."
