Two Unprecidented Days in Nashville TN May 1 & 2, 2010
I’ve posted an iPhone photo of my front lawn but this is NOTHING compared to what other people are going through right now in the metro area surrounding Nashville TN! Here’s a few highlights:
650 water rescues
8 confirmed dead
All three interstates closed
Over 18 inches of rain in two days
Cumberland River went from 37 to 49 ft which is about 9 feet above flood level
23 metro schools damaged
New cars from a new car lot floating down the street and piling up on top of each other.
A school portable trailer floating down the interstate and disentegrating when it hit an 18 wheeler.
Bridges washed out.
You always see these incredible images on TV of other places but it’s really surreal when it’s happening to your area. My thoughts and prayers are with the people who have been hit hard.
