Check out this rainfall map totals from may 1st, 24 1/2 inches max on the map in the last 36 hours, Nashville is right in the over 15" gray area !!!
Just a few minutes ago on the radio feed they are reporting 200+ people surrounded by rising water on I-40,and many hundreds more trapped in homes, and are saying that bridges in the area are suspect to collapse. 7 people confirmed dead in Nashville so far. Buildings on fire with no way firefighters to access .
Just about every TAC TG's on the B channels for the Fire Dept/Ems (ie B6, B7, etc) are in use. Lots of commands tied together (too many to list) but what has baffled me is none of the Unified Command TG's (those listed as A channels) are not in use. It's pretty chaotic.
Well i was one of MANY from surrounding counties who responded to Davidson County with our rescue truck and 2 boats. We worked on the interstate and surrounds neighbor hoods. It is something I haven't seen at all living up here. I was talking to one fireman from NFD and he said he had lived there his entire life (57 year) and has never seen it flood like this.

This week I learned that the conference that I was possibly going to attend (and couldn't in any case due to staffing issues) is indefinitely postponed because the venue in Nashville is underwater.
The Gaylord Opryland Hotel has been the site of this conference before, and I was down in 2007 for the same event. What a beautiful site. Seeing some of the video from inside the place almost made my head spin. It's hard to wrap your brain around the amount of water inundating the actual metropolitan area.
