Highway 90 landslide detours, delays drivers

A landslide that happened in one East Tennessee county Wednesday is still causing headaches for drivers in several local communities.

After numerous days of heavy rain, a 125-foot wide landslide, measuring 30 feet deep, occurred on Highway 90 near the Claiborne/Campbell County line in the unincorporated town of Eagan.

TDOT spokesperson Mark Nagi said the department suspects the waterway next to the road, which flooded earlier in the week, played a role in the incident.

Snowy weather: A list of resources

After days of rain, the temperature has dropped below freezing in East Tennessee, dumping thick, heavy, wet snow on much of the area. Many roads are turning slushy, and as the temperature continues to drop late into the evening, conditions are expected to get icy.

This system is passing through the area right at the height of rush hour traffic, and hour goal is to make sure everyone has the information they need to make it home safely.

Here are resources you and your family might be looking for during these rough conditions.
