Dickson County schools will be closed Wednesday due to scattered power outages that have left some schools in the dark. Director of Student Services Steve Sorrells announced that Director Dr. Danny Weeks made the decision to close schools today because several of the facilities are without power as a result of last night’s storm. Weeks at first announced schools would be delayed an hour due to problems on several roads, but as the extent of the power outages was revealed made the decision to close schools for the day. Sorrells said the extended care programs would remain open. With Dickson Electric Service dealing with problems across the county, Sorrells said it is not clear how soon power will be restored to the affected schools. A tornado warning was issued for Dickson County overnight, but expired with no reports of sightings. Damage reports are widespread, including trees down on Highway 48 North, power lines down on Yellow Creek Road and Marshall Stuart Drive, a home with damage to a roof in White Bluff and a dispatcher said a section of Spencer Mill Road was closed due to downed power lines and trees. There have yet to be any injuries reported as a result of the storm in Dickson County.
