In Robertson County, there are reports of wreckers clearing 18-wheelers stuck on hills. TEMA says the county reports 8 to 10 inches of snowfall.

In Obion County, a National Guard unit is following Baptist Hospital’s ambulances to help their crews if they run into problems.

Flooding has been reported on State Route 33 in Hancock County. State Route 297 in Campbell County is closed.

Gibson County officials are monitoring three breaks in levees that could affect a water treatment plant, a jail and three homes.
