HENRY COUNTY, Tn (ABC News) – A portion of a Road has collapsed following a landslide in Hardin County, Tennessee.
The Hardin County Fire Department released photos showing what the road looked like on Monday. By Tuesday morning, a significant portion of the road had collapsed.
The road will be permanently closed as the county’s highway department investigates.
After relentless rain and erosion from the Tennessee River, two homes collapsed after the ground gave way. It also took a camper and a Jeep with it about 100 feet below.
The incident occurred late Saturday afternoon after what neighbors describe as “terrible rain.”
It happened as the county continues to recover from ongoing flooding and damage from straight-line winds several weeks ago.
