Maryville Daily Times
Authorities said Sunday that the Elkmont campground in Great Smoky Mountains National Park has reopened after about 170 campers had to evacuate the area Saturday because rainy weather caused a mud slide.

Two roads in the park -- Sparks Lane and Parson Branch Road -- were closed Sunday because of weather and water issues, according to the National Park Service's weather information line.

According to the National Weather Service in Morristown, Blount, Knox and Sevier counties received about three inches of rain Saturday, which is a record in Blount County.
