Mt. Juliet Police Respond to Flash Flooding

Mt. Juliet, Tenn. – Quick, heavy rains brought flash flooding to Mt. Juliet that closed many roads and prompted a water rescue. Around 6:30 a.m. Thursday morning, Mt. Juliet Police Communications began to receive calls of rising water on roadways. The following roads were closed due to flash flood waters:

  • Old Lebanon Dirt Road near Page Drive (Road Remains Closed)
  • Old Lebanon Dirt Road near Valley Center (Road Remains Closed)
  • W. Division St near Wilson/Davidson County Line (Road Remains Closed)
  • Curd Road near Mt. Juliet High School
  • Nonaville Road near Windtree Golf Course
  • Sunset Circle near Lebanon Road
  • York Road near Lebanon Road
  • Willow Creek Drive
  • SE Springdale Drive
  • Sunnymeade Drive
  • Maricourt Street
  • Sports Road

A water rescue was also conducted at a home in the 3000 block of West Division Street. Two elderly residents were trapped inside their home due to flood waters. One of the residents called 911 because they were afraid of the rising water. A water rescue team from Wilson EMA quickly responded to the scene, and they did an excellent job in evacuating the residents to safety. Both elderly residents are safe, unharmed, and on dry land.

A few motorists, who dangerously drove through flood waters, stalled and flooded their vehicles. In addition, some homes in the Mt. Juliet area have been affected by flood waters. Mt. Juliet’s Public Works department is conducting a survey of damage, and those results are not available at this time. The major flash flooding impacted roadways for nearly two hours during the heavy rains.

Thankfully, no one was seriously injured or killed during this flood event.
