NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -
The National Weather Service confirms a tornado touched down Sunday afternoon in Rutherford County.
The EF0, with winds between 65 and 85 miles per hour, damaged a home along Floyd Road two miles south of Eagleville.
The tornado was part of a strong weather system that included widespread heavy rain which washed away some rural roads, causing minor evacuations and closing some schools on Monday.
No deaths or injuries were reported.
In Middle Tennessee, officials evacuated residents of a mobile home park in Waverly Sunday as water rose.
Cold temperatures quickly moved in after the rain ended overnight. The Tennessee Department of Transportation salted some roads that may be susceptible to slick spots.
The Harpeth River reached flood stage near Kingston Springs and water levels are expected to rise throughout Monday morning. The river will continue to rise to near 19.9 feet by Tuesday morning.
At 20.0 feet, flooding of the Kingston Springs City Park begins and water approaches Pinnacle Hill Road and East Kingston Springs Road. Several secondary roads near the river will become impassable.
Workers rescue dogs from rising water
In one county, the problem wasn't so much the flooding, rather it was the issue of pipes.
The Humane Society of Dickson County said water began rising from pipes in the pens where 24 puppies were being kept, but about a dozen volunteers worked in downpour conditions to pump the water out and get the animals to safety.
Flood waters receded from the area Monday.
Schools closed, delayed
Schools in Hardin County, Decatur County, and Perry County are closed Monday.
Delayed two hours Monday are Macon, Clarksville-Montgomery, Houston, Humphreys, Stewart, and Dickson Counties.
School transportation officials said several roads in Hardin County were impassable after a line of heavy rain and storms moved through the area Sunday, so schools there are closed Monday.
In Montgomery and Macon counties, schools will open two hours later than normal Monday in order to give bus drivers and others more time to navigate the roads to school.
Flash flooding, some roads closed after Sunday storms
Flash flooding was reported in several Middle Tennessee counties overnight after a strong cold front moved through the region.
A Flash Flood Watch was issued for most of Middle Tennessee through early Monday, meaning conditions are favorable for flash flooding to occur.
In Humphreys County, Waverly residents reported flooded roads and yards, specifically in the Sycamore Avenue area.
In Dickson, police dispatchers reported blocked storm drains had triggered flooding behind the police department on Main Street, with the water filling the parking lot near patrol cars. Public works crews were able to quickly unstop the drains, according to workers on the scene just before noon.
In Hickman County, the National Weather Service reported water over Highway 100 in Centerville.
In Davidson, emergency management reported ponding in the following areas: Dry Fork Road at Clarksville Pike, I-40 East at mile marker 201, American Road at Charlotte Pike, 20th Avenue North at 31st Avenue and Neely's Bend at Oakdale where a stuck tree branch is causing a creek to overflow.
In Montgomery County, emergency dispatchers reported Ashland City Highway near Old Ashland City Highway had flooded early Sunday but had since cleared.
The rain will produce rapidly rising water levels on smaller creeks and streams and in urban areas.
Those who live in flood-prone areas should be prepared to move to higher ground if a Flash Flood Warning is issued. Remember most flash flood deaths happen in automobiles. The National Weather Service's slogan "Turn around, don't drown" is important to remember during this rain event.
