TWRA Behind on Endangered Species Updates
AP Wednesday September 13, 2017

An audit has found that the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has not updated the state's endangered species list in 16 years, even though it is required to do so every two years. Comptroller Justin Wilson's office said in the audit released Tuesday that the state is also running afoul of an agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to annually submit additions and deletions from the list of threatened species. This could cause Tennessee to lose federal grants. The head of the state wildlife agency's biodiversity division was unaware of the reporting requirement until 2013, and officials are in the process of creating a new endangered species list.

CHURCH HILL, Tenn. (AP) - A motorcyclist has died after police say he was knocked off his bike when a deer ran in front of him and then struck by a tractor-trailer.

The Kingsport Times-News reports that 35-year-old Jeremy Clark was killed in the accident about 7:30 a.m. Monday.

The Tennessee Highway Patrol says witnesses saw the deer run out in front of the motorcycle and knock Clark off the bike. Clark fell into the path of the rear portion of an 18-wheeler. The driver of the truck was not injured. No citations were given.

NWS in Nashville Calls Irma "Underwhelming"
Peg Broadcasting News/AP Tuesday September 12, 2017

Folks on the Plateau breathed a collective sigh of relief as Tropical Depression Irma made its way into the region overnight and Tuesday morning. In spite of a Wind Advisory, the storm for the most part produced only a tolerable 10 to 15 miles per hour winds during the Advisory period. Several areas in Cumberland County saw only a little more than a half-inch of rain in a 24 hour time span, which is a far cry from earlier predictions that Irma could dump up to 3 inches on the Plateau. And the power stayed on for most of the area with only about 20 VEC customers in Monterey without electricity around 11 a.m. Tuesday. The story was much different in south eastern Tennessee, where the remnants of Hurricane Irma blew down trees and caused power outages, forcing some school districts to close or delay classes. No injuries have been reported. Meanwhile, officials in Nashville deactivated the city's emergency operations center around 1 a.m. Tuesday, about five hours after partially activating it. The National Weather Service in Nashville called Irma's impact "underwhelming" and said while the next couple of days will be rainy and breezy, warmer temperatures are expected to return on Friday, when the high is projected to reach the mid-80s.
