KINGSPORT — A violent storm roared through town late Saturday afternoon creating a potential deadly situation at Hobby Lobby in the East Stone Commons shopping center.

The back wall and a roof section collapsed at the popular arts-and-crafts store while it was packed with shoppers.

That structural damage caused three large natural gas lines to leak, and Atmos Energy was working to fix the lines Saturday night.
