Heavy rain floods roads in Eastern Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. -- A clear forecast for the remainder of this week should help parts of East Tennessee dry out, after downpours saturated much of the area.

The steady showers soaked Knoxville for more than 24 hours and flooded several roadways. 

At Middle Tennessee State University, students had to wade through the standing water on campus. Barricades were placed in certain spots to keep teachers and students from driving into puddles.
