CODE YELLOW: Heavy Rains Expected Overnight

A few showers could pop-up around the mid-state this afternoon, but our Microcast model shows the heaviest rain to arrive in Nashville around 3am. Areas to the west of the city will see it sooner and areas to the east will see it later.  Some storms could be strong with gusty winds and heavy pockets of rain.  A few left-over showers could hang around as late as Friday night, so area high school football games might be wet.

Governor Tours Lincoln County Tornado Damage

Stacy Case
Fayetteville, Lincoln County

   Governor Haslam toured the storm ravished area of Lincoln County Wednesday by helicopter and on foot.  He met with the county mayor who told him there are possibly 35 homes damaged or destroyed.  That's 10 more than originally thought.
    The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency says the damage stretched across five miles. 
    The National Weather Service now says there were two tornadoes that touched down in Lincoln County.  An EF3 tornado outside Fayetteville and a second EF2 tornado near Flintville.
     The State of Tennessee is assessing damage to see if it reaches the $8.7 Million dollar mark to qualify for federal disaster assistance.
