Nashville Under Water

Nashville is under several feet of water.

I was rather shocked when a friend told me last weekend that there was a huge flood in Nashville - because I hadn't heard a thing about it!

Not on the radio, not on TV. It's rather bizarre how no one is covering this flood.

It's not like a little localized flooding either. It's the entire city.

Here's a video:

I know there was the whole car-bombing incident, and the oil spill, which is what the media seems to be more concerned about at the moment. Those things are important too, but I really don't think it's a good excuse to practically ignore all those people in Nashville.

It's ridiculous.

Anyway, please say a prayer for those in Nashville who are trying to piece everything back together. They're handling the damage from the flooding by themselves - I say good for them for not running and whining to the government to save them!

Thanks for posting about this! My parents just moved to Nashville a year ago so we were quite surprised. We've seen it on the news websites that we read, so that's encouraging!

great video! thanks for posting. it didn't seem like such a big deal because no one seemed to make a big deal out of it like you said---but man! It's bad.

(and i'm excited! looks like we may actually be in NJ on the 29th but will still be here on the 20th!)

oh and you certainly can do prayer warrior wednesday! it's certainly not stealing but encouraged! I will be praying for you :)

isn't it awful? I'm from Nashville and all of my family still lives there. If it weren't for that (plus 90% of the people I follow on Twitter/am friends with on Facebook live there) I wouldn't have known either! I'm going for a visit in 2 weeks and am so sad to see Nashville in this damaged state. :(
