Please keep this state in your positive thoughts. The major interstates and many roads around Nashville are underwater and there are continuing tornado warnings and watches. With night coming on and news warnings that this will continue into tomorrow makes it an unsettling time to say the least. Most of the west and middle parts of the state are in trouble with flooding and people are trapped in their homes and cars with water rising. I believe it has reached over to vicrowe's area also. We will keep everyone who is in this storm's path in our thoughts too. Thanks

We're in West Tennessee and had a tornado warning last night about 2:00 a.m. As far as I know one didn't touch down anywhere near us. Just a lot of lightning, thunder and winds at times. We are under a Flash Flood Watch and chances of more rain and storms tonight and tomorrow. Prayers for those in Middle Tennessee and Eastern Tennessee and all other states affected by the tornadoes and floods.

We are under a tornado watch until 11 p.m. here in Evensville in Southeast Tennessee. There has been alot of flooding to the west of us and more rain is in the forecast. They are saying that the Cumberland Plateau could see up to 6 inches of rain before morning. That is just across the mountain from where I live. Here in the valley they are saying a possiblity of 2-4 inches of rain with more on the way tomorrow. My thoughts and prayers are with everyone in my beloved state that is in the path of these storms. Great way to look forward to my birthday huh?

We had tornado sirens going off from 11:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. constantly. Very scary and not much sleep at all, but we made it okay, and haven't heard about any damage locally yet this morning. Hope Vickie, Cindy and anyone else east of us are okay and all others who are in the path of the storms.

Even for someone like me, who is in a condo well uphill and on the second floor, this unending rain is frustrating. I'm in a play that opened Friday night and was supposed to have just an eight performance run; we canceled last night's performance because of the weather, and it wouldn't surprise me if we canceled today's as well. I'm not even sure that everyone in the cast could get there, since one guy lives in Murfreesboro, where the flooding is reportedly worse than it is in parts of Nashville. I'm just hoping everybody can stay safe!

My thoughts are with you in Tennessee. I have a niece in Chattanooga, so hoping to hear from her.

All of you who are in the path of the tornadoes and flood waters are in my thoughts and prayers.

You are all in my thoughts and prayers.
Please find a safe place before something happens.
My son's house, along with amny other peoples' homes were demolished
in 2003 by tornados. Lucky for me, my son got stuck in work miles away.
However, many people weren't as lucky.
With my prayers,

Just in case you missed it.

For many, many, way too many people----no homes, no jobs, no clothes, no cars, no business left, for some no family member left because they drown, no road to travel, no bridge to cross because both washed out, no train to ride---the track bed is gone, no electricity, no water unless what you have is boiled. Pets, well they're either swimming around, or floating but the lucky ones are being plucked from the water and taken to a shelter.

Forgotten - you betcha!

I think one of the best suggestions offered in the video was to go to the Red Cross website and donate.

This message has been posted on Facebook and is legitimate: Nashville needs your help! Please donate to the Red Cross or another flood relief organization that will help the people here. You can text "redcross" to 90999 to donate $10 right now.
We need all the help we can get.

Many people are indeed hurting here, and the national media is all but ignoring it. I personally came through it all without any losses, but I have many friends who weren't so lucky. Just a $10 donation will help so much. Thanks!

I'm amazed at how little is being said about Tennessee with New Orleans taking the column inches.
Hope things work out for you. Just sent you a pm Lane -- still, more time to construct WPs.....

Received this:

"thanx kiddo. the first floor and the yard look like katrina. mud everywhere, wood floors buckling, items pushed in different rooms by the water. most likely all upholstered furniture is no good, only real wood stuff has a chance. having a hard time getting any service people out. staying at a friend's house, lovely people and home - so nice to come back to after mucking around at the house. son-in-law sean is coming, maybe with his dad to help us.

if we had stayed 15 or 20 min longer we would have been trapped & have needed rescue. they r saying it could be a 1000 year event or even more. will post pics soon i hope,"

Not to put a damper on the day but the local television channels are hosting a benefit tonight that is being provided by several music personalities and you may be able to catch parts of it on CNN, the Weather Channel and other media outlets. I know many of you don't particularly appreciate country music but as Tallactor said earlier we really will appreciate any help we get. This is not just for Nashville but so very much of the state. In the video below you will see some sights around Nashville and surrounding counties shown during a conversation between Anderson Cooper and Kenny Chesney. A lady in the video watched as her husband tried to rescue their daughter only to watch them both be swept to their deaths. Two couples about mine and Don's age whose families I have known all my life drown. It was overwhelming reading the obituraries this morning and finding their names there. I find it hard to even talk to anyone about the flood without crying. A friend I graduated from school with called today and we weren't able to finish a conversation because it's just too painful. We've lived here all out lives and have never witnessed anything like this. Hug your kids tonight, call your parents and family. Life and security is so fragile. Thanks in advance to anyone who donates to the relief fund for Tennessee. Tennessee will be okay and we will be back strong and just as friendly as ever. Come visit soon and see!

No, there hasn't been a lot of national media coverage (although this morning CNN HLN had a video of a cow stuck on the roof of a house). And it's a shame, because to those affected, it is every bit as bad as Katrina was.

Our prayers are with you and you families. We hope you can come out of this stronger.
