Good morning, Nashville. More trouble is on the horizon for the TVA after they reassessed several coal ash storage sites and found the hazard potential for four of the sites to be high.

A high hazard potential isn’t based on a probability of failure, but rather a high potential for loss of human life in the event of a spill.
