Severe Weather – Flooding
April 28th 2011
Humphreys County continues to address issues related this week’s wind storm and following flood.
15 to 20 county roads remain closed or partially closed.
Four bridges may be destroyed beyond repair and five or more requiring repairs. Numerous culverts have washed out and need repairs. Several miles of roads are washed and badly damaged.
The Buffalo and Duck rivers are now beginning to flood low lying roads. The rivers are expected to continue to rise for another two or three days.
Electricity has been restored to all but about 100 residences which are primarily in the New Johnsonville area. MLEC projects that all power will be restored by the end of today.
The City of New Johnsonville is working to provide an alternative means of providing water due to the anticipated flooding on the Tennessee River where the water intake is located.
