Flooding reported in Middle TN after weekend rain

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Too much rain too quickly left a mess over the weekend in many low-lying areas across Middle Tennessee.

The flooding even has schools closed for the second straight day Tuesday in Stewart and Houston counties.

In Bellevue, ball fields and a driving range looked more like lakes Monday as floodwaters inched higher.

"Even though it wasn't raining the last 12 hours, they keep coming up and we're just wondering why that is. We're hoping that's going to be the end of it," said resident Layne Pollak.

Near the Robertson-Montgomery County line, at Port Royal State Park, high water attracted the attention of Diana Brubaker and her great-nephews.

"We came down the old back road and you couldn't get through. It was flooded. So we got out and looked at the water across the road," Brubaker said.

There was plenty of it to see, but when the Red River finally subsides, it will likely leave a lot for maintenance to cleanup.

"We come down here a lot. And there's usually an area that we can go down there and get down by the river, but we can't get even get down to the picnic tables today," Brubaker said.

Most of the picnic tables still remain submerged.

On the nearby Trail of Tears, the swollen river picked up and moved a small wooden bridge.

And in Clarksville, rushing water helped form a large sinkhole on Purple Heart Parkway. According to the Tennessee Department of Transportation, it could take crews more than a day to fix it.

Also in Clarksville, water spilled over Dunbar Cave Road, closing off traffic and causing a few headaches.

The Red Cross assisted a total of 52 people in Houston, Stewart and Montgomery counties this weekend.
