Three inches of water collect in the Pegram City Hall. At Turner’s Creek, water rises as much as three feet in five minutes. Up to six inches of rain fall in Cheatham County. There is water damage to Sam’s Creek Bridge on State Route 249. Propane tanks float down Sam’s Creek. A wooden bridge is destroyed and twisted into an “S” by the flood waters at Dry Creek.
