Nashville Flood Waters Slowly Receding

The water is slowly receding in Nashville tonight, but the real work is just beginning.

Thousands of families are coming home and cleaning up the mess left behind by the flood.

City officials are urging residents to keep conserving water and FEMA teams have begun arriving to start delivering aid.

The death toll for the entire state of Tennessee now stands at 18, but there are concerns that once the water recedes more victims will be found.

The National Weather Service says the water level in the city has fallen about three feet from its crest of 12 feet above flood stage on Sunday night.

    Why is Nashville being covered so heavily? What about Franklin's flood that destroyed homes and businesses as well? Franklin is in Kentucky and not much has been said about this. There are people needing help there as well. Bowling Green has some areas in need as well. Not much has been mentioned concerning these families and these areas. I think there should be more news on these areas especially Franklin off of 31 W in the Rutherford Rd. area and Bowling Green off of Three Springs Road and the apartment complex off of Russellville Rd.
