Storms Bring Wrecks and Ham Radio Field Day

  Email   Print
Wrecks around the county were causing grid-lock traffic everywhere.
The historic district was not immune to the crashes.
In north Murfreesboro, Memorial Boulevard saw much action.
At times the wind was blowing the rain sideways.

The high winds and rain that blew across Rutherford County Friday afternoon left a rash of crumpled finders in the wake. There were numerous vehicle crashes in all parts of the area.

This was all a result of Tropical Storm Cindy, that was downgraded to a depression on Thursday. In addition, the storm sweep was farther north than originally expected, and this area was only hit with a brief period of nasty weather.

That was not the case with the mid-west, where Cindy left a torrential amount of rain.


The storm's low-pressure system is being absorbed by a cold front, which translates into heavy rainfall this weekend in the D.C. area, and increasing as the storm moves northward through the mountains.

This event was a great opportunity to visit the ARRL Amateur Radio Field Day participants. The event continued for 24-hours son Saturday at 1 to Sunday at 1 in the afternoon.


The Stones River Amateur Radio Club communicated with all parts of the world from the Smyrna campus of the Tennessee Technology Center.
