It’s been an eventful 24 hours of severe weather. The middle Tennessee area saw severe thunderstorms, torrential rain, hail, tornado watches and lots of flooding. Flash flooding became the main concern, as a Flash Flood Emergency was issued for portions of Williamson, Davidson and Wilson counties. Saturday evening, there were multiple reports of water rescues, flooded homes, cars, and, of course, many impassable roads.
