Rainfall in the southeastern portion of Lee County caused flooding, road closures and collapsed bridges in the early morning hours Wednesday. Over the last 24 hours, between 4 and 6 inches have fallen in areas of Lee co. In the last three days, that number is near 8 inches.  Workers cleared debris from roadways throughout Smiths Station yesterday after severe floods damaged bridges, shutting down traffic and closing multiple roads. Some residents said the water was ‘Up to their cars door handles’. A section of Lee Road 246 was also among the closed areas.
