So far 22 people have been killed in Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee as the record breaking amounts of rain cause Cumberland River to continue to pour itself into surrounding neighborhoods.  Thousands were caught off-guard by the flash floods and were forced to flee. The Country Music Hall of Fame and The Grand Ole Opry House in Nashville were flooded.  By Monday night, weekend storms put them at about 12 feet above flood stage.
