A Flood Warning Without the Rain

To friends and family,

I have created a video that displays some of the destruction that has occurred today (5/3). I know you might be thinking, "It isn't raining there anymore. How could it be getting worse?" Well it can.

When water leaves one area, it has to go somewhere else. Our 8ft of water traveled to the Cumberland river... the river that the downtown area of Nashville resides.. as well as Opry Mills. These areas are becoming inundated with multiple feet of raw sewage, chemicals, and water. Also - the city of Nashville is also low on water and only one water treatment plant is up and running. This plant is only accessible by a train track as its parking lot is under water.

Nashville isn't the only city affected. The entire area of middle Tennessee is flooded. Some areas getting up to 20 inches of rain.

It is going to get worse before it gets better...

Please keep us in your prayers.

Love Jenny
