City of Clarksville
Clarksville, TN – For Eddie Combs, who’s worked for CDE Lightband for 45 years, trees are a big deal.
Combs has spent the last 11 years as the utility’s right-of-way foreman, and a big part of that job is managing how trees interact — or better, how they don’t interact — with power lines.
Clarksville, TN – Trees and power lines were knocked down by high winds late Thursday and early Friday across the city, while heavy rains forced water over roadways in some low-lying areas.
Emergency management officials said Clarksville saw from 6 to 7.5 inches of rain overnight, and winds with gusts up to 44 mph. The rain was pushing the Red River and the Cumberland River to flood stage. Localized flash flooding was occurring along the creeks and streams that flow into the rivers.
