MM’s Winter Wx Concerns
Yet another system will be monitored for Friday. Moisture continues to look very limited with that system, but I’ll keep an eye on it.
On This Day in Wx History
2002- A three-day flooding event across Middle Tennessee ends, with flooding reported in 39 of the mid state’s 42 counties. Two persons are killed in Cookeville on the 23rd during a rescue attempt. In Bedford County, a couple and their son are killed when their car is swept into Carr Creek during the evening of the 24th. A woman is killed at the Cedars of Lebanon State Park in Wilson County when she is swept away in a flooded creek. Overall, 6 people are killed, with another 11 injuries. A total of 97 homes are damaged, along with 37 businesses, and at least 34 bridges. Some 40 roads are damaged in Lawrence County alone. There are also numerous school and road closings, and 180 people have to be evacuated from their homes, 46 of them being placed in shelters. Rainfall totals during the three days are topped off by Wartrace, which measures 9.25″. Flooding also occurs along many rivers, with the Duck River at Columbia cresting more than 13 feet above flood stage. Damage is estimated at $2 million.
