There will never be enough boats

May 7, 2010

During the recent massive flooding in Nashville, Tennessee, the rain was so heavy and the rising waters so fast that many residents and tourists were trapped in their homes and hotels.  As First Responders both on and off duty mobilized and scattered to the most dangerous places in the area, thousands of people remained trapped by the rising waters.



Middle Tennessee Flooding

May 2, 2010

Over the past 48 hours Middle Tennessee has seen some of the worst flooding ever recorded in Tennessee history. In light of this, we will be taking a few days away from the blogging to focus on helping get Middle Tennessee back as close to normal as we can. It will be a long road to recovery. At this point, the rains seems to be subsiding and the work will begin.

If you are interested in helping with the task of cleaning up, or if you just want to give something, you may do so at the links below. There is no greater opportunity to show kindness to fellow Americans than a crisis like ours. I fully expect the region to work together to fix the problems created by these floodwaters. It may sound cliche’, but we are called the Volunteer State for a reason.

We will continue to pray for everyone affected by the rainstorms and flooding. However, we will be active in working to provide relief to those that need it.

If you would like to donate funds to the relief effort, the Middle TN Red Cross can be found here.

If you would like to donate time, skills, etc. you can sign up at “Hands on Nashville” to volunteer here.
