Clarksville may have historic flood levels. The main street along the river is closed and two of the three bridges between downtown Clarksville and Fort Campbell are closed by the flooding Red River.
Incredible pictures are coming out of Nashville and Middle Tennessee this morning. Floodwaters from many creeks and rivers have inundated literally thousands of homes and businesses.
The main street along the river in Clarksville is closed as well as two of the three bridges that connect Fort Campbell and Clarksville. Montgomery County, TN remains under a flood warning and area schools and Fort Campbell are closed.
Flooding along the Cumberland is expected to worsen today in Clarksville, where the river had topped flood stage Sunday night by more than eight feet.
The National Weather Service predicts the Cumberland to rise another foot, while the Red River, which meets the Cumberland just north of the downtown, crested late Sunday. Two of the city’s three bridges across the Red River were shut down early Monday afternoon, leaving State Highway 76 as the only major route to central Clarksville from Interstate 24.
