I’m here in Stanton, and despite the flood warnings, people are still filling up their gas tanks to head out on that road. One man says he headed back to Jackson to do a job.
“I’m en route to Jackson, TN, and I’m going down there for a little job that I’m doing on today,” Thomas Shaw, who traveled to Jackson for a job.
There is also a tornado warning issued until 6:30 am, and Thomas shaw says he is prepared for what the weather has in store.
“Looks like rain is coming this way from the hurricane, I believe it’s going to be really rough today,” said Thomas.
On a day when there are rain and heavy winds, people can expect to see, “Many accidents and things like that,” says Reginald Preston.
Preston is a tow truck driver, and when I asked him if he was worried, he said no because he’s been on the road for years.
“I’ve been doing this for twenty years,” says Preston.
Even though hurricane Laura hit Texas and Louisiana, Tennesseans will see remnants of that with heavy winds and rain expected to last for the rest of the day.
