Most of Middle Tennessee has experienced a break in the rain, but it won't last. More rain and the threat of severe weather is expected well into tonight, meteorologists say.

In La Vergne, a portion of Old Nashville Highway was closed at about 5:15 p.m. after it became flooded.

Earlier in the day, Traci Short, 39, and her six-year-old daughter were forced from their Deer Drive home by rising flood waters. They were not allowed to return until about 3:30 p.m.
