Lebanon police, fire and public works administrators gathered Wednesday to discuss contingency plans in the event flooding happens from the forecasted rain in the city.

Wilson County inmates also gathered to help fill sandbags in preparation for a flood event.

Rain and possibly storms are forecasted for the next couple of days as remnants from Tropical Storm Harvey pass through Middle Tennessee.

Lebanon police Chief Mike Justice encouraged citizens to monitor weather and condition reports to stay safe and not to wade through or let children play in standing or moving water.
