As flooding continues across Franklin, officers are working with the Franklin Fire Department and Williamson County EMS to assist citizens who are stranded in vehicles or homes. Officials are currently working to evacuate 25-30 people from the historic Carnton Plantation, 1345 Carnton Lane.
Crews in boats are working to reach the trapped citizens and carry them to Williamson County School buses staging nearby.
Several cars were abandoned at I-24 and Mill Creek in Antioch. Many people were stranded, not because they tried to drive through the water, but because as drivers became stuck, water rose around them.
Nashville fire fighters rescued a driver from an 18-wheeler around 7:00 p.m. Saturday by throwing a line out to him. They could not get any closer to the driver because the water has risen up to the median.
