|Storms expected Halloween night|
|Tuesday, October 29, 2013|
Heavy rains, strong winds and a possible tornado are expected Thursday as a cold front moves through the area.
This could affect trick or treating activities. Steve Spencer from Wilson Emergency Management said that west of I-65 should see the most severe weather, but that east could get severe weather as well. According to the report, damaging winds are the biggest threat. Rain fall totals should be 1-2 inches, but because of dry conditions recently, flooding should not be a major concern.
The City of Mt. Juliet has an alternate plan if the weather is messy on Thursday night.
“If Oct. 31 Halloween trick-or-treating is stormed out, then the Mt. Juliet Police Department has plans in place to ensure patrol staff levels are increased for Friday and throughout the weekend,” Mt. Juliet Police Department said in a statement Monday.
City Manager Kenny Martin confirmed at the City Commission meeting Monday that the City will do trick or treating Friday if the weather Thursday doesn’t allow it.
