NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Despite recent beautiful weather, the scene was completely different in Middle Tennessee five years ago.

The thousand-year flood hit in a way no one had ever seen before. Homes were swamped, there were water rescues, and sadly some people died.

The flood caused more than $2 billion in property damage in Nashville alone.
