Memphis, Shelby County and Tennessee states of emergency overlapped Friday afternoon as the prospect of an ice storm forced weather-related adjustments.
Shelby County Mayor Mark H. Luttrell, Jr., declared a state of emergency due to icing conditions throughout the county.
"Personnel from many emergency response and support agencies are working around the clock due to the ice storm. Besides overtime expenses, additional resources could be needed," said Luttrell. His declaration followed one issued Thursday by Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam.
