Hundred-year Flood

Tennessee got flooded. Big time.  The Buffalo River was at an all-time high.  Gigantic amounts of water.

(compare to the graph in the post from April 25th):
Notice how the scale, typically going to around 13 feet, has been expanded to 33 feet.  With around 15" of rain around Middle Tennessee in 2 days, the water couldn't empty fast enough;  the River shot up to 25 feet high.

The pictures below tell the sad story.
