ROBERTSON COUNTY TENNESSEE: (Smokey Barn News) – Road conditions are very poor, many companies are closing today due to the cold icy weather so be sure to call ahead before you attempt to travel. We have many trees and power lines down. We have come down off our peak of 8,000 homes without power but Pleasant View is still largely without power. Crews are working to restore power but the road conditions are slowing efforts. If you don’t have to travel please don’t.
According to Emergency Management Director R.L. Douglas, Governor Bill Haslam has placed state of Tennessee in a State of Emergency. “We have very very hazardous driving conditions and it will likely take a couple of days to recover. If you attempt to drive you will likely end up in a ditch or be stuck in traffic. Crews are working to open the roads but the low temperatures are hampering efforts. The back roads are very dangerous. It’s best to just not go out today.”
