The LP Field that our Tennessee Titans play in only suffered minor flood damages. The tornado last weekend caused so much damage that the owners are just now doing observations of the stadium. While a few service areas have only 2-inches of water, in a few spots, the whole field is completely covered.
The stadium parking lots were also filled with water on the east bank of Cumberland River.
Senior executive vice president Steve Underwood said the Titans’ offices and practice fields that are a few miles away were not damaged.
Titans headquarters is located by a levee, but there were about 250 volunteers sandbagging to protect the levee from rising.
“Any replacement costs will be covered by insurance and will start as soon as possible,” said Underwood
“Our staff and Metro employees and government who worked tirelessly together deserve our thanks,” added Underwood.
The tornado was one of the worst — killed 7 people and injured many more. In some places, the power is still out.
Titan renewal season tickets deadline was set for Monday, however, Underwood said that the deadline has been extended, and they will get in touch with season ticket-holders once power is back on.
