Episode Narrative A warm conveyor belt of heavy rainfall developed in advance of an intensifying upper level low which dumped from around 2 to over 5 inches of rain across the eastern two thirds of north Alabama and middle Tennessee. The highest rain amounts were recorded in Jackson and DeKalb Counties with 3 to 5 inches. The rain fell over 24 to 36 hour period, with rainfall remaining light to moderate during most its duration. The rainfall resulted in minor river flooding along the Little River, Big Wills Creek and Paint Rock River. A landslide occurred on Highway 35 just north of Section in Jackson County. A driver was trapped in his vehicle, but was rescued unharmed. Trees, boulders and debris blocked 100 to 250 yards of Highway 35.
Event Narrative Mill and Snead Road was barricaded and closed due to flooding along the Paint Rock River. Time estimated.
