    So I dont know if any of you have heard about the middle tennessee flooding but its crazy.

    The record for the most rain fallen in 2 days was 6 something inches. We got a little over of 14 at my house between saturday and now. Pretty much all of Middle Tennessee is Flooded.

    Here is a video my brother and his wife took leaving our driveway.

    Hows everything with everyone else in that region? I know there are a few members that are from that area.

    Half of downtown in flooded. My nephew was with a friend and his dad at the movies in Cool Springs and water came underneath the emergency exit door and they were stuck in Cool springs for a couple of hours because their car flooded and a lot of roads were closed.

    It was bad from what everybody is saying. We just got some rain here in Chattown but nothing like middle Tenn. My friend ended up getting a flight from Atlanta instead of Nashville. Thanks guys!

    There was one video of one of those portable class rooms floating down 24.
    That was some wild stuff out that way.

    Just to give you guys an update. Nashville is going to make it. Lot's of destruction though. I seriously doubt Opryland will be completely back to normal by Christmas. Lot's of people have been helping out their neighbors. Thankfully I wasn't there but did see some of this while helping a buddy that lives there. It is way worse when you see it for real and not on a picture.

    I'd say.
    From the videos on the news,it looks like all of downtown is under water.

    You are right Yote.First and second street downtown Nashville was underwater and even LP Field where the Titans play wasn't even spared.Even the business that weren't flooded have basements downtown that did.This is going to take years to recover from.Meteorologist already calling this a 1000 year flood in it only happens once in a 1000 years.The Cumberland river goes through Nashville then to Clarksville.To relieve the pressure the dams were released and now Clarks Vegas is getting the brunt...much worst then I originally thought.Half the city is closed,no schools,no government workers.I feel bad for the homeowners and business owners,I hope they get relief.

    I didnt think the rive was that close to Clarksville.
    If the water keeps rising and you need to evac,just give me a shout and come on down.
