The Tennessee Lottery returned to conducting its own drawings beginning with the midday Cash 3 and Cash 4 drawings on May 5. Due to flooding in the city, the Nashville Claim Office remains closed.
On May 3 and 4, and per its Disaster Recovery Plan, the Lottery used the numbers drawn by other lotteries that held drawings with similar games and drawing times.
“We would like to thank the Kentucky, Michigan and New York lotteries for their assistance during this natural disaster,” said Rebecca Hargrove, President and CEO.
