NASHVILLE, Tenn.- One of the hardest areas hit in Nashville Saturday by the storms and flooding was in the Antioch area.  

Administrator Brian Sweatt said the building belongs to the Lighthouse Christian School. The portable is their Hope Mission Building.

"That water rose so high and so powerful. The video really demonstrates how powerful that water is. It just got up underneath that thing and pulled it from its cords and off it went," explained Sweatt.

Sweatt said the building is a portable used for the mission department of the church.

"We have a really effective international ministry. We have several pastors from different communities: Korean, Ethiopian, Pakistani that meet in there and have offices in there to lead their ministries," explained Sweatt.

The portable was on campus, which is about a quarter of a mile away from where the TDOT Smartway cameras captured images of their Hope Building floating away and eventually falling apart.

The administrators said they sit down Monday morning to make a plan to rebuild. Sweatt said the main campus and church has not been damaged, but the pre-school campus on Antioch Pike was severely damaged, with some building submerged in the flood water.
