Crews Prepare for Winter Weather in Madison County

Posted: Updated:

Rain and flooding were a serious problem for the Tennessee Valley on Wednesday.

"This is the first time in my career and the first time in the careers of many people here that we've had a snow and flood event going on simultaneously," says Madison County Emergency Management officer Paige Colburn.

Emergency crews are starting to prepare for another weather system.

"This is a new one for us," says Colburn.

"Some areas east of I65 could see 4 or 5 inches in those higher elevations. They're very unpredictable so things may change as we head to the morning hours," says Meteorologist Spencer Denton.

The Madison County Emergency Management team isn't taking the situation lightly.

"So we may see some closing of 565 or Memorial Parkway overpasses and bridges. It just depends how cold it gets and whether or not we have that black ice issue that they talked about," says Colburn.

Officials are waiting to lay any salt on the roads. But, we did have a hard time finding anyone out buying milk and bread.

"I have 6 children, I'm always stocked up," says residents Terry Bianca.
