Thank you so much for posting this, I hope these videos can get the Nashville situation a bit more attention.
We have been pretty much ignored in the media considering the amount of deaths (10 in Nashville itself) and over $1 billion in damage.
I am just one of the many volunteers that are clearing and cleaning the thousands of homes that were flooded.
So many have lost everything and don't have flood insurance.
What that article didn't tell you is that we are also still suffering a critical water shortage. Due to the main water supply plant being flooded,
(we still have one) supply is down to 35%.
It sure makes life difficult when you have 3 inches of smelly mud on everything and you can't effectively use water for the cleanup. We have been
told to use water only for cooking and drinking and most people are taking it seriously..well those who give a crap anyway.
Been a week since I've had a shower or been able to do washing, and after scrubbing mud, ripping up carpets and hauling trash everyday I stink!
But thats ok, so does everyone else.
The response from the Nashville public has been amazing, volunteers and donations are coming from those who have little but themselves to share.
Samaritans Purse has arrived to help, and next week Tide for hope laundry vans will be allowed to come.
Tonight there was a telethon on local WSMV channel 4 and they raised $1.7m for Nashville, so it isn't all bad news!
I am so lucky to be part of an amazing community, Nashville is a special place and the local disaster response has renewed my faith in mankind.
Also there was another related thread started when it was flooding, it didn't really go anywhere... just thought people might like to see some of the
pics posted in that thread.
Nashville flooded today by 13ft in some areas
