Flooding in Tennessee

I just heard that the Cumberland River is at a record high flood level and is expected to crest at over 60 feet in Clarksville.  Levels this high have not been seen since the 1930’s – before the dams were built. 

This is a picture of Saline Creek in Bumpus Mills.

Here’s another view of Saline Creek.  I have seen it higher, but it has been several years.


This is a view of Dyers Creek in Dover.

This is a view of Dover Landing and the Cumberland River.  You are usually able to drive further down, but obviously that part is covered with water.

Hope you are all safe!
