Kids rescued from bus as massive flooding hits Tennessee county

Emergency crews are working to rescue residents from widespread flooding in Sumner County.

Sumner County official Sonny Weatherford said no injuries have been reported at this time in connection to the flooding.

He said the northern part of the county was hit the worst by the flooding. Some parts of the county received over 6 inches of rain, according to our sister affiliate WSMV in Nashville.

Two water rescues are underway on Old Gallatin Road at North Hunter Road and also at Cummings Lane.

At one point, students were trapped on three different school buses.

Jeremy Johnson with Sumner County Schools said all students are OK and have either arrived at school or have been picked up by their parents.

Seventeen children were rescued from a school bus on Buck Perry Road in Bethpage. Four students were on another bus. It's not clear how many students were on the third bus.
