I feel so helpless being 13 hours away. I feel like I should be doing something. But, what can you do when you're 1/2 a day away?
Tennessee is the Volunteer state. This time of crisis really proves why they are called that. People all across the state are reaching out to help. Our schools are opening their doors for shelters. Random strangers are reaching out to help those who lost everything. People are out in their boats helping anyone in need. The state is being brought together.
They are saying the flooding is worse than Katrina. Unlike Hurricane Katrina, Middle Tennessee is not getting any national attention. Which is sad to me. Seems like Tennessee is left to pick up the pieces themselves. Houses are completely under water. More than 12 people have been killed in Tennessee alone. Some people were trapped in their cars on the interstate, the flood waters covered cars. So many historic places are damaged. The Grand Old Opry, Opryland Hotel, Country Music Hall of Fame, and the Ryman all have water damage. It's such a sad time for Nashvillians.
Now for the Pictures:
|Wal Mart in Ashland city before the water really came in|
|The roads in front of Harpeth High school|
|The only cow that survived from it's owner's farm. So sad.|
|LP Field/ Titans Stadium|
|Grand Ole Opry|
|What once was the Very beautiful Opryland Hotel. |
Had to rescue more than 1,000 people. More than 10ft of water.
All the lower levels where completely flooded.
|This car ended up being completely under water.|
|Country Music Hall of Fame before they were forced to open|
|Opry Mills Mall- Rain Forest Cafe|
The water got higher than this.
I could post so many more pictures, but I will leave it at this. Please continue to keep the flood victims in your prayers.
