Strong Storms Flood Roads and Knock Out Power

On January 23, released an article entitled Strong Storms Flood Roads, Knock out Power.

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) - Several areas of Middle Tennessee, including Nashville, suffered wind damage and area flooding after an outbreak of severe weather late Sunday and early Monday.

A tree is down on Eatons Creek Road in Joelton, blocking traffic Monday morning.  It's unclear when the tree will be removed.  Police said they didn't become aware of the downed tree until a driver crashed into it.  Drivers are urged to avoid the area and use Clarksville Pike.

At 8:21 a.m., only 100 Nashville Electric customers are without power.  Most outages are in Joelton, Crieve Hall and northwest Davidson County.

Residents are advised to be careful driving to work Monday morning and be aware of possible downed limbs and power lines in their neighborhood.


Computer models indicate a tornado may have hit an area of Dickson County, but that is not confirmed. 

Several reports indicate trees and power lines are down along Highway 48 north from Dickson to Charlotte.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol said trees were down along areas of Interstate 40 in Middle Tennessee may have caused a wreck late Sunday that caused minor injuries near the Hickman-Dickson county line.
