Flash floods caused devastation in middle Tennessee last week, resulting in 22 deaths, including those of seven month old twins, and much damage. President Biden has declared the flooding a disaster, opening up federal funds for recovery.

Here is a website for those who are able to offer assistance, either monetary or volunteering to help with the clean up.
