Even as the worst of Monday night’s storm had passed, authorities statewide had to deal with its aftermath. Two Rutherford County Sheriff’s Deputies rescued four children from their car trapped in water Tuesday morning. Mother Jessica Elgin was able to walk through the flood waters with the assistance Deputies Derrick McCullough and Michael Parsons who rescued her children ages 8 months and 2, 7 and 11 years old from the car. Deputy Parsons said they carried the children from their car trapped in about 3 feet of water. The mother didn’t think the water was that deep when she tried to cross a flooded roadway. Deputies had to stop another driver before he drove into the water. “Anytime you go through moving water, it can move your car,” Deputy Parsons said. “A car is not made to go through water.” Monday’s storms not only dumped torrential rains, but also spawned at least two tornadoes in the Volunteer State. The National Weather Service has confirmed Tuesday the touchdown of an EF1 tornado in Clarksville, TN as storms passed through Monday evening. Crew also confirmed a second tornado that touched down in Perry County. Crews are still looking at damage to determine if more twisters touched down in Tennessee.
