Flood Recovery Network Continues To Help Flood Victims

Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - It's been a year and a half since May's historic flood, but for many, the memories are still fresh.

On Friday, Whit and Al Hill were visited by members of the Flood Recovery Network, an arm of The United Methodist Church aimed at helping make sure flood victims are not forgotten.

They said they vividly remember when the floodwaters roared into the basement of their Inglewood home ruining almost everything.

"And then the water rose from dry floor to here. It was so fast, so fast. It took about a minute, all of a sudden, our belongings were floating away," they said.

Canvassers will go door to door for the next several weeks talking with past flood victims, offering resources, advice, and even counseling if necessary.

"We know from other experiences that the mental health, the emotional, spiritual needs sometimes lasts as many as five years after the actual event," said Brandon Hulette .

Canvassers hope to see more than 2,500 homeowners over the next few weeks.

If you are a flood victim, and still need help, you can contact the Flood Recovery Network at 567-3232.
