Flooding strikes Marshall County
Hours of steady rain this week caused havoc in Marshall County on Thursday morning as flood waters spread across roads and rivers strained at their banks.
The county spent most of the day under a flash flood warning issued by the National Weather Service after several inches of rain fell overnight on the county and middle Tennessee in general.
Marshall County Schools were forced to close on Thursday as rising waters closed roads, interrupting bus transportation.
Several surrounding counties closed due to flooding issues as well.
Early Thursday morning, the Marshall County Office of Emergency Management issued a list of some 17 roads throughout the county, including within Lewisburg and Chapel Hill, that were closed by flood waters.
