Home / National News / Flood Threat Continues as Rainfall Hits 15 States


(NEW YORK) — More heavy rain and flooding is expected in parts of the Midwest and East Coast on Friday.  This, after dozens of people had to be rescued from their homes Thursday following powerful flash flooding in Tennessee and Missouri.

Fifteen states from Oklahoma to Maine are currently under flood watches and advisories.

Already, parts of Missouri have seen over 20 inches of rain this week.  On Thursday morning alone, Nashville, Tenn., saw up to 7 inches fall in a matter of hours.

But those areas aren’t out of the woods yet.  Some of the heaviest rainfall expected in the next 48 hours will come down once again right around Nashville and back into Missouri, where two to three inches of rain are expected.
