Middle Tennessee Rivers Rise With Recent Rains

Posted: Updated:

NORMANDY, Tenn. – All the rain over the past week has caused big problems for rivers and creeks across the mid-state, especially for Duck River in Bedford County.

Water levels are too high for canoes and kayakers, and it's expected to stay that way through much of the week.

A Kayak Rental business in Normandy has been closed since July 3 and they don't think they'll be able to open until the end of the week -- during what is usually their busiest time of year.

"Our best hope is next weekend everybody's going to want to get on the river because we've all been cooped up from the rain this past week," said Kim Council of Normandy Kayak Rental.

River rescue crews said people need to be especially careful of debris and tree branches in the water in Duck River after the water levels go back down.
