Flooded Roads Across Middle Tennessee

Yesterday, we had our fair share of severe storms. Today, my attention is full focus on flooding. Check out how much rain has fallen since the start — up to 8″ in localized spots. Too much.

Here’s how the radar shapes up as I write here (5:57 pm) — widespread rain mainly alongside I-65 and west. Red colors indicate heavy rain, over Waverly and Eagle Creek.

Many roads are closed and this is a GOOD thing. Here’s one viewer photo of flooding off the Harpeth River by our loyal Channel 4 Viewer sally.DD PICTURE3

Flooding is the lead when it comes to annual weather related deaths so it is necessary to taken precaution. Do not attempt to walk or drive through flooded roads. The eye cannot see the depth of water, especially at night. It only takes two feet of water to carry away most vehicles. If you are caught in a vehicle with rising water, get out immediately and get to higher ground.
