6:30am - Narrow squall line crossing the river

At 6:30am, MWN StormView Radar (shown above) is depicting a fast-moving but narrow squall line crossing the river into downtown Memphis and Shelby Forest and also approaching the airport in south Memphis. This line will move across the metro area over the next hour, bringing brief torrential rain and wind gusts as high as 40-50 mph. Behind this line, showers and isolated thunderstorms will continue for a couple of hours, but I expect most precipitation to be east of the city by 9:00-9:30. Wind will shift to the southwest but remain very gusty through the morning and early afternoon.
Have any damage reports? Things being blown around that usually aren't? Leave me a comment below!
