Words cannot describe the devastation suffered by Middle Tennessee from the recent flooding in the region. Brought on by the largest amount of rainfall in recorded history, whole communities–including Nashville–are under water. The video above captures the disaster in truly humbling fashion.

Our thoughts go out to the victims of the flooding, and we all hope for a safe and speedy recovery.

Sadly, this isn’t the first time this year we’ve brought attention to flooding disaster in the States. On the heels of the flooding in New England (most notably in Rhode Island), we published this blog entry to help the flooding victims take the appropriate steps when re-entering their homes once the waters have receded.

We encourage everyone to familiarize themselves with these guidelines. We also encourage everyone to read up on these additional resources regarding flooding, which includes information on flood preparation, flood insurance and flood recovery.
