Patrons are asked to leave Tom Lee Park for safety or shelter in place if they want to stay.
Those who leave can go to the MLGW parking garage until the storm passes over.
Memphis In May officials released a statement saying, "We expect to resume admissions at 4:30 p.m. and do not currently project additional threatening weather."
We will update you as more information becomes available.
For the public's safety we are ceasing admissions and advising patrons to shelter in place due to nearby lightning. We'll provide updates as we get them! #WCBCC18
