It was horrible, the initial storm we here locally got 10" rain in less then 2hrs come down (other places more). Then next storm few days later when stuff wasn't even dried up yet had another 5" then again 2" yesterday and so far 1" today. It was like out of a bad movie that day we could MAYBE see 30ft around the house that's as far as viability went in that rain, it totally looked as if our house was submerged in a large tank and we're all under water. Lots of damage to a ton of people in Crossville, Cookeville, Nahsville, Memphis and all inbetween - CRAZY...there's folks that been here on my Rd for 60yrs and have never seen nothing remotely close to this. All kinds of Dams broke, levee's gave in etc
