Sandbags protect downtown Clarksville

The National Weather Service (NWS) issued a statement today (Friday) saying: "Widespread and extremely unsafe flooding will continue today and tonight". Flood stage is 17 feet, and the river is forecast to rise above flood stage by Wednesday evening and crest near 20 feet by after midnight tonight. Officials on Friday said the river is expected to crest well below what was seen in 2011. Flooding there is due to rivers like the Elkhorn rising to near-record levels and breaching levees in some spots. "People who live near rivers should be paying close attention to flooding updates and be ready to move valuable property, if necessary".

A map shows the area at risk beside the river stretching from just outside the city centre up past Oughtibridge to the north west.
