On Saturday night, rain leaked through the roof at Austin Peay State University's arena, disrupting a men's basketball game. Officials later gave the all-clear, and play resumed at 11:30 p.m.

Here in Nashville, there was minimal storm damage, according to Metro officials. There were few power outages during the storm.

The Office of Emergency Management is working with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the National Weather Service, Metro Water Services, the Metro Nashville Police Department and the Mayor's Office to monitor the rainfall and its impact on the area's rivers and creeks.

Water was released from the Percy Priest Dam on Friday to make room for this weekend's heavy rain.

Anyone who sees roadway ponding or flooding in Nashville is asked to call 615-862-4600.
