The Northwest Tennessee Disaster Services is reporting a levee that has broken north of Kenton, TN with evacuations underway. Downtown Martin, Tennessee is flooded with up to two feet over streets. 

Viewers Nick and Christy Dane tell Local 6 flash flooding caused high water to rush through downtown Martin near Lindell and University Streets.
