In some areas, roads turned into what looked like raging rivers.

The trouble with flooded out creeks and standing water on roads extend from the Little Harpeth River to Hendersonville and beyond. 

Emergency crews are resting up after this morning’s storms for another wave expected on Thursday night. Another line of storms will follow on Saturday. 

Remember, do not drive through flooded roads during weather events like the one this week. It’s not worth the danger!

Besides heavy rain and flooding, thunder and lightning have also been reported during this weather event. On Wednesday, a camera captured the moment lightning struck the Tennessee Tower. 

Many of the areas that flooded on Wednesday morning are know to be trouble spots, like the sinkhole off Highway 46 in Dickson County. However, as more and more rain falls in the area, expect to see more flooding in less likely areas.
