    Just watched video of man being swept away by rapid moving water near Bell road. I hope he ends up okay.

    Massive water rescues still in progress, entire apartment complex being evacuated by Nashville Fire Department.

    State of emergency declared in Laverne, Tennessee
    Indian Mound, Tennessee inundated as Cumberland river over flows it's bank, water rescues in progress.
    Clarksville, Tennessee is bracing for massive flooding along Cumberland river.
    I live less than 1/2 mile from the Cumberland river but on high ground, I should be okay.

    Apartment complex in Smyrna, Tennessee scene of massive water rescue by Smyrna Fire Department.

    Death toll in Tennessee up to 5.

    Here is a video of the "House" that hit the cars earlier.

    It ended up being a portable class room from an elementary school, notice the "HOPE" sign on the side.

    TEMA is asking the Governor to activate the Tennessee National Guard so they can place high water vehicles in strategic areas in the Middle Tennessee area.

    I sure hope the Wolf Creek Dam don't break, they have been worrying about that for quite a while.

    Scary stuff. Prayers for you. I am trying to call my children now. Gotta go.

    Round two today.

    13 inches of rain in some areas outside Nashville and we are expecting double today.
