Nashville and other parts of Tennessee were hit by the region’s greatest rainfall in recorded history this weekend, resulting in a severe flood that has devastated the region and even swept away buildings and cars.

The 20 inches of rain have turned interstate highways into veritable rivers, submerged neighborhoods and broken dams. Power outages have affected 36,000 homes. Thankfully, the casualties haven’t been as ubiquitous as the damage. The flood has been ongoing for two days, and so far eleven deaths have been confirmed.
