Episode Narrative On the morning of June 27th, strong to severe thunderstorms formed along multiple pre-frontal boundaries ahead of a slow moving cold front over northern Tennessee. As these rounds of thunderstorm activity moved southeast, several rounds of heavy rainfall occurred west of interstate 65. Several flash flooding ocurrences and heavy rainfall totals were a result across northwestern Alabama before the cold front pushed south of the area on the morning of the 28th. Scattered damaging winds also occured with these severe storms.
Event Narrative Very heavy rainfall caused many streets in the Cherokee community to flood. Some roads, including a portion of North Pike Street was closed due to flash flooding. Some reports of between 6 inches and 1 foot of water over roadways were received. One report of water 2 feet deep at the intersection of Mulberry Lane and Georgetown Road was received. Other streets which were heavily affected by this flash flooding were: Pine Street, 6th Street, Mulberry Lane, Georgetown Road, and Virginia Street.
