Macon County Emergency Services Warning of the Possibility and Dangers of Flooding

Macon County Emergency Services is warning people of the possibility of flooding in the rivers and streams all around the county, after the heavy rainfall that came through the area all weekend.

From Emergency Services Director Warren Cabe: “As the rainfall diminishes, residents should still expect the possibility of flooding. Runoff from smaller tributaries will reach larger streams and flood waters may not crest for some time after rainfall stops.

Areas along the Little Tennessee River may especially be affected. Use caution when driving near flooded areas.

Never drive through flood waters.”
