Watching The Water On the Cumberland River

The Cumberland River drenched a handful of areas along it in Bell County during last year’s flooding. With an already saturated ground and the river above normal levels, officials say they are taking all the precautions possible as more rain moves into the region this week. “We’re trying to get everything in order and it concerns us that there’s so much rain coming,” said Ben Barnett, Bell County’s Emergency Management Director. Barnett worked through the flooding last year, he says levels then hit around 1,019 feet, which caused the Cumberland River to flood.
