Rain and Schools for Thursday

Wednesday, 20 February 2019

Almost 20 roads and streets in Cannon County were covered with standing water Wednesday. The Cannon County Highway Department and Tennessee Deportment responded to the reports. A break in the rain will help in clearing some of those roads.
 
Schools in Cannon, Coffee, DeKalb, Warren and Rutherford Counties are closed Thursday.
 
 A Hazardous Weather Outlook is still in effect for Cannon and all surrounding counties.
 
 
According to the National Weather Service, more rain will bring a continued threat of flash flooding Friday morning through Saturday night. Additional rainfall totals of 2 to 4 inches will be possible across Middle Tennessee. These totals,
combined with the recent rainfall and already saturated ground, could lead to significant flooding across the area.
 
Some strong to potentially severe thunderstorms may affect parts of Middle Tennessee on Saturday or Saturday night. Damaging winds and flooding will be possible.
