Nashville to Deactivate Emergency Operations Center
December 28, 2015
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Metro’s Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will deactivate the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) at 2:30 p.m.
The main threat of today’s storms is believed to have passed. However, there have been reports of downed trees and power lines throughout the city. Do not approach power lines. Instead call 911.
While there have been no significant reports of flooding, residents should be cautious due to saturated grounds. In the event of isolated flooding, here are some helpful tips:
- Remember, when driving near or approaching a flooded area, it is best to: “Turn Around, Don’t Drown.”
- If you live or work in an area prone to flooding, pay close attention for the potential of rapidly rising water that could be a danger.
- Continue to monitor NOAA weather radio, NERVE, and local news media for warnings, developments and other important information.
- Do not attempt to walk though flood waters.
- Be cautious of any live wires that may have fallen to the ground near standing water.
