This is not news worthy because it is not man-made.
The MSM only covers man-made disasters. Specifically Government / NWO made disasters. Oil Spill, Car-Bomb, 9/11, Katrina, etc.
NWO does not like competition for attention from Mother Nature in destroying the lives of peasants.

There are so many BIG THINGS happening that these events are fighting for facetime. The TimesSquare event was a misdirection move to srcub Oilgeddon from the populations brains. Nashville 500 year flood happened so fast. No build up. No drama. We live in exponential times.

And as far as it being the 500 year flood, NO! There was something similar in 1927, here and in other Southern cities.

And I wasnt aware that we could only handle one problem at one time.
Oh no wait, this is Obama, best that he does only One thing at a time anyways. We dont want his brain to explode from too much pressure.
U.S. Senators Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., and Bob Corker, R-Tenn., were in Nashville Tuesday for a firsthand look at the devastation caused by the deadly storms that passed through Tennessee over the weekend.
“I’d like to congratulate Mayor Dean, Governor Bredesen and the community for doing a first rate job in getting an application together for disaster assistance and getting it to the President, and I thank the president for acting quickly.

I am sorry for the loss China, as well as INDIA has experienced, but should that negate the levity of the flood and loss in Nashville?
At the request of the President, I’m in Tennessee for the second time this week to meet with local officials and assess the damage from the severe weather and subsequent flooding that swept through this state and other parts of the Southeast this week, and to ensure that all the needs of the state and local governments – as well as communities and individuals – are being met. I met with Governor Phil Bredesen and Nashville Mayor Karl Dean yesterday and reiterated our commitment to bring every federal resource to bear in response to this – as Governor Bredesen described – “unprecedented” storm. FEMA was on the ground from the beginning and is leaning forward to ensure a swift federal response to this disaster.
We’ve been engaged with the affected states since last Saturday when the rain began to fall, and currently have representatives on the ground in Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Louisiana to measure the damage and provide federal assistance where needed.
On Monday night I met with Governor Bredesen of Tennessee, and on Tuesday, the Governor requested, and the President signed, a federal disaster declaration for the state, standing up federal assistance by way of temporary housing and home repair grants, loans to cover losses from uninsured property, and other programs to help individuals and business owners recover. The President signed a similar declaration for Alabama the day before.
To date in Tennessee:
* 27 counties have been declared as federal disaster areas;
* Approximately 12,000 individuals have registered for FEMA assistance;
* FEMA has approved over $1.5 million in federal assistance for housing and other needs.
We’re working to make sure that every request is processed rapidly, and that individuals and business owners in the affected areas have all the information and resources they need to quickly recover from these storms.
I’ll join Secretary Napolitano tomorrow in Nashville, where we’ll meet with state and local officials and receive briefings on the coordinated federal, state, and local response efforts underway.
Individuals who live in the affected area can register for federal assistance by calling the FEMA hotline at 1-800-621-FEMA (3362) or by visiting www.disasterassistance.gov. You can also visit the fema.gov from your mobile device for more information at m.fema.gov...
Individuals should always be prepared for a disaster like this. Visit ready.gov for information to prepare for the unexpected.

So I ask all of you, what is the real reason this is being ignored by the media?
