Update Of Activities From The Emergency Operations Center

2/20/2014

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Metro’s Emergency Operations Center (EOC) remains partially activated and continues to monitor a significant severe weather event.

The National Weather Service (NWS) has issued a tornado warning for Davidson County until 8:45 p.m.

Strong winds have caused minimal downed trees but several power outages throughout Davidson County. NES has 12 crews working outages, and over 6,300 total customers without power.

Metro’s Office of Emergency Management says it is extremely important that residents take shelter. Those that must be on the road should exercise caution when driving – strong winds make driving difficult, especially for high profile vehicles and downed trees and power lines may make roads impassable.

Residents should continue to monitor weather conditions on a weather radio* or through local media throughout the day and be prepared to respond as conditions warrant.  *NWS is currently experiencing problems with weather alert radios

The NERVE (Nashville Emergency Response Viewing Engine) has been activated in coordination with this EOC activation. This new site will provide information about storm related road closures, any evacuation areas or routes, shelters and relief centers. This also includes a media tab with a Twitter feed and press releases. http://nerve.nashville.gov
