In 2010, A Great Flood Swept Through Nashville And Changed The City Forever

Nashville is a beautiful city, situated right on the banks of the Cumberland River. The river offers great opportunities for people to enjoy the city, including kayaking, riverboats, and even walking along the banks. But the river comes with risks as well, and that has never been more apparent than in May of 2010, when a massive flood inundated the city. The 1000-year flood caused extensive damage to some of the city’s most iconic landmarks, but you would never know it by looking at it today. In fact, you probably won’t even believe these pictures are real.
