Freezing rain and sleet caused damage across the county last week. The Smithville-DeKalb Rescue Squad, DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department, EMS, DeKalb County Highway Department, TDOT, The sheriffs department, city police and private citizens all joined the effort to correct the problems.
Tennessee remained at a Level II-State of Emergency as of press time due to severe winter storms. While the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency activated the Tennessee Emergency Management Plan and declared a State of Emergency in Tennessee last Monday. Many DeKalb Countians were without power, and several minor accidents occurred on the roadways, no fatalities were reported in the county.
