Overnight Flooding Across UC

Areas across the Upper Cumberland experienced different levels of flooding overnight Saturday.

Luckily, Upper Cumberland EMA Directors are reporting that flood waters are beginning to recede. However, they are warning residents to stay cautious as receding waters can cause further flooding in creek areas.

Overton County EMA Director Chris Masiongale said there are still a lot of impassible roadways. However, Masiongale said thankfully there were no water rescues in the county with the long list of flooded areas.

That includes closures and partial closures at:

Rickman Monterey Highway between Highway 111 and Rickman Road Roadway.

East Howard Road

Old Railroad Road

Frogtown Road

Great Valley Lane

Hardys Chapel Road bridge near Owen Reid Lane

Christian Community Road

Midway Subdivision Road

Hodge Street

Zachary Street

Tower Hill Road is closed at Celina Highway and the North Oak intersection

Cash Street

Pickett County County EMA Director Garry Garrett said the county was lucky to not experience any injuries or water rescue needs. However, he said at this time the South Ford Bridge and Burnt Mill Ford Bridge are still impassible.

Monterey Police Chief Bill Randolph said the town really got lucky with flooding this weekend. Randolph said many of the areas that usually flood, did not.

Randolph said there were areas near Monterey High School that saw water approach the roadways but stopped and have receded back.
