9:15 Friday: Update on Dam Break

Many of you probably heard your weather radios go off earlier this evening. The warning was for a flash flood warning for a dam that had failed near Monterey. I’m not sure why any of Cumberland County was included in that warning.

I just saw this on Twitter, via Fox News out of Nashville, and thought you all might be interested. The NWS reports that, “After 5 p.m. dispatchers reported the failure of the earthing dam that they described as a small lake on Industrial Drive. Emergency Management, fire and rescue crews are responding to the area in Monterey that’s near the old Lakeside Deli.”

The warning was extended for people who live on the river in Calf Killer.

Fox Nashville included this video of the break.
