Flash Flood Warning Impacts Northern, Middle Tennessee
The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for parts of our Tennessee listening area. The new warning is in effect until 3:00 p.m. Thursday, and includes the counties of Davidson, northern Wilson, south-central Robertson, southern Sumner, and Trousdale.
Rainfall of three to seven inches has already fallen in the impacted areas, with another one to three inches possible through the afternoon. However, the National Weather Service says the waters appear to be receding in most of the areas hit the hardest Thursday morning.
A spokesman for the Nashville Fire Department told The Tennessean that they’ve responded to about 35 rescue calls from people caught in the high waters.
