The release of a significant amount of water from Normandy Dam is leading to flooding concerns Monday in Bedford County.
Bedford County Emergency Management is advising residents in low-lying areas along the Duck River downstream from the Dam to consider moving to higher ground.
The Duck River in Shelbyville was at 25 feet as of 4:00a.m. Monday, which is considered minor flood stage. The forecast from the National Weather Service forecast expects the river to rise to 29.5 feet later Monday morning, which would be considered moderate flood stage.
