Be Weather Aware - Flooding Potential Continues


LINDEN, TN - With the potential for another heavy round of rain entering the mid-state, flooding concerns are once again a top priority.  Middle Tennessee could receive another 2-4 inches from noon Wednesday until noon on Thursday. This rain will worsen any creeks and rivers in the area that are already high. Closer to the TN/AL border you get the more rain is forecast to fall.

As mentioned above, most of West and Middle TN are under a flood watch as well as areal flood advisories.

The Flood Watch is set to begin 12pm today and expires 12pm on Thursday. If you live in flood-prone areas you will need a plan of action. With this being severe weather week, I would like to remind everyone to stay weather aware, especially during all this flooding.
