Episode Narrative Despite a well developed surface and aloft low pressure center weakening as it continued to move to the east out of the Southern Mississippi River Valley Region, it continued to usher in rich southerly moisture across the region. Because of the proximity to the approaching low, mainly western portions of Middle Tennessee received flooding/flash flooding. One of the hardest hit areas was near Christiana in Rutherford County, where 50 homes were damaged due to flooding.
Event Narrative U.S. Highway 43, just north of Lawrenceburg, along with several other roads, especially across northwestern portions of the county, were flooded. Two school classrooms in Lawrence county were flooded. Name of school and location was unknown.
