RIP Regal Bellevue 12.
The theater is pretty far under water.
everyone stay safe & dry
The Cumberland was at 49 feet last time i saw on the News, craziness!!
We're pretty blessed in the Boro that its not too bad, i feel for many others around the midstate area though.
The Cumberland is the highest it has ever been post-dam.
We doubled the record for two day rainfall in middle tennessee. The prior record was 6.5inches, we had 13.5 inches Saturday and Sunday.
We set the record for the most rainfall int he month of May, 2 days into the month!
all I know is that I had a 5 gallon bucket on my deck. when I tipped it over sunday morning it was at least 10 probably closeer to 12 inches in it. This was before the rain started sunday. Probably got nearly as much sunday as saturday. I would be suprised if there was not way closer to 20 inches at my house.
You guys still down there? I saw tornado warnings on the news last night for the Mississippi/Tennessee area. Up here in Connecticut we had the same kind of flooding five weeks ago. Believe it or not but people are still cleaning up that mess.
I knew it was going to rain a bunch, so I set my cooler out on the porch mid day on Saturday (it had already rained quite a bit). By 11:00 on Sunday, my cooler was overflowing with water. That's a lot of rain!
Downtown is dry except for 1st avenue, which is now a part of the river. Sorry, people who live or work right by the river. You are now one with it.
Cumberland not going to recede until Noon Tomorrow
Every so often the urge comes over me to sing Johnny Cash's "How High's the Water, Momma?"
I hope all those of you who are in it are ok. Hang in there!
