Ken Weidner with the Sumner County EMA said the central portion of the county was hit hard, spanning from Gallatin northeast to the Portland area.
Sheriff Weatherford said the water was receding and moving southward towards Nashville. However, Friday morning he urged residents not to go out for at least a few more hours.
Late Friday afternoon, officials said several roads were closed, including Buck Hollow at Bagsby Ranch. The approach to the bridge on Jenkins Lane at Lower Station Camp washed out. Old Gallatin Road was also closed at North Hunter Road.
Six or seven other roads were also damaged, but they had been cleared.
Do not drive through standing water - it could be deeper and more swift than it appears. If you feel as if you're in danger, call 911 immediately.
