Heavy Rains Pour Over Marion County

Over an inch of rainfall fell on Marion County in under an hour Wednesday afternoon, causing temporary flooding on highway 14 in front of the Marion County Fairgrounds, among other areas. Knoxville officials say the city is working with the Marion County Fair Board to come up with a long-term solution to the water-drainage issues on highway 14, because most of the rainwater runs down from the fairgrounds area.
