District Two Shift Sergeant David Keenom said, “I’m only seeing about ten percent of the vehicle traffic we normally have downtown this time of night. Most of those vehicles are front-wheel or four-wheel drive.”
Patrol officers advised a lot of the accumulation on the ground looks like snow, but it is pure sleet at this point.
Only four houses are known to have lost power so far. All four of the North Clarksville residences are near Fort Campbell Boulevard and the Clarksville Department of Electricity is working to restore their power right now.
