Seven years ago today and tomorrow in 2010, Nashville was hit with a flood the likes of which the city has never seen. Nashville shattered every rainfall record with 13.57 inches of rain over a 36-hour period.
26 lives were lost in Tennessee and Kentucky, including 11 in the Nashville area. There were almost 11,000 properties damaged in the flood leaving 10,000 people displaced.
Today we remember how far we've come, the victims of this horrible tragedy and the volunteers who brought light to darkness. To those new to Nashville, you can see more about this flood on The Tennessean.
