Lift Up NashvilleMay 10th, 2010 |
10 days ago…
Storms rolled into Tennessee that would bring over 20 inches of rain in some areas in just 2 days. The Cumberland River rose over 51.86 feet, it’s highest in over 80 years. The devastation in Nashville is nearly immeasureable and early estimates are already at $1.56 billion dollars. People have perished, lost their homes, and many had no flood insurance whatsoever. The downtown Nashville area was one of the hardest hit and many landmarks are ruined such as; The Gaylord Opryland Hotel, The Schermerhorn Symphony Hall, and The Grand Ole Opry House.
We’re asking you to help.
