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.
