...Potentially Life-Threatening Flash Flooding Possible...

. More heavy rain is on tap for Middle TN starting tonight.
Multiple waves of heavy rain will bring 3 to 5 inches to the mid-
state between tonight and Saturday night. The main concern will
start after midnight tonight as areas that experienced widespread
flooding Wednesday could see 2 to 3 inches of rain on Friday
alone. Folks who live in southwest portions of Middle TN,
including those west of I-24 and south of I-40 need to have a plan
in place now in case the need arises to evacuate to higher
ground. Please don't take this lightly. Have somewhere to go at a
moment's notice to escape flood waters.
