A soggy weekend led to flooding over parts of Rutherford County and leaves behind plenty of cleanup for this week. Those areas prone to flooding certainly saw it. High water signs were out in many locations. Overnight Saturday into Sunday morning, a tornado warning was even issued for southern Rutherford County but fortunately no touchdown. WGNS' Rafferty Cleary has more on the story...


Verbatim: There were several homes evacuated, mainly in the northern portion of the county. Flooding on Old Nashville Highway at Jefferson Pike forced two homes in the La Vergne area to be evacuated. The city of La Vergne said two families had to evacuate their homes because of the flooding, and City Hall even had to open up to help them out. By Saturday afternoon, those impacted found help and City Hall was closed. Also, in Smyrna, there were reports of homes flooded and evacuations in the Rocky Fork Road area, near Almaville Road area. Murfreesboro Fire and Rescue and Murfreesboro Police even evacuated homes in the area of Hardwood Drive, Naudina Court and Camborne Circle. Those homes are located near the I-24 and Highway 840 interchange.
