As I am sure many of you have seen on the news, the Nashville area got hit with almost 15 inches of rain over the weekend. I know that I talked to someone I know in Nashville and he said it was a mess.
The Opryland area is flooded and it is being compared to the great flood of 1975. The Opryland Convention Center hotel was evacuated last night and the 1500 guests were moved to an area high school. They parking lots around the hotel were unde water.
I have also heard that the parking lots at Opry Mills mall are flooded and that the area around the Opry House, Opry Museum and Acuff Theater are also underwater.
No word as of yet if the Tuesday Night Opry will be moved to the Ryman Auditorim from the Grand Ole Opry House, but it would not suprise me. I know that in the flood of 1975, the Opry moved its show to the Nashville Sports Arena because of the flooding. I guess it would be determined by how much access they can get to the area.
Also, many areas of downtown along lower Broadway and 1st and 2nd streets are underwater also.
