Nashville, TN (Current Weather Conditions)

Caption: I am a wrecker driver for Martin's wrecker service. We were called to remove the vehicles that got caught in the flooding on interstate I 24 westbound near the Bell Road exit in Nashville Tennessee. Of course this is after the waters had subsided. It was roughly 200, 250 cars and trucks that got caught up in the flood. The debris to left is actually the remnants of a portable classroom that floated alongside the interstate and eventually rolled over and disintegrated.

Hi, Saw the floating portable school annex, as well as cars and trucks on CNN! So, this is how they wound up. Frightening! Was there any warning to stay off the roads and highways? Your work is valuable and I'm sorry that the wonderful city of Nashville is going through this ordeal and sorry mostly for the loss of at least five lives. Know a student at Vanderbilt. No electricity in his housing and finals are this week. He's a wreck, too. Take care of yourself!
