Over Saturation Conditions in the South
Flooding due to heavy rains in the Deep South has brought on many different trying situations such as flash floods, mudslides, landslides, bodies of water overflowing, and the trials don’t stop there.
On Tennessee’s Highway 70N in Hawkins County, a large and devastating landslide occurred early Thursday evening, taking out both lanes of the road. Two vehicles were involved in the slide as the road collapsed, and one person was transported immediately to a nearby hospital for care. Voluntary evacuations of nearby homes was advised, though not required.
