UPDATE: Two more bodies found in flooded Nashville


NASHVILLE, TN (WKOW)-- Authorities in Nashville say the bodies of two more people have been found in the flooded city.

They said the two bodies were found late Monday. That brings the storm-related death toll to 10 in the city and 18 in Tennessee.

In total, 28 people have died from weekend storms and flash flooding in Tennessee, Kentucky and Mississippi.

Thousands have fled their homes in Nashville as the Cumberland River continues to rise after heavy rains dumped more than 13 inches of water in two days.


NASHVILLE, TN (WKOW) -- During a news conference late Monday morning, Police Chief Ronal Serpas said six people were killed in weekend flooding in Nashville alone.

Reports indicated the latest victim was an elderly man found in the yard at his home.


ASHLAND, Miss. (WKOW) -- The death toll from weekend thunderstorms that hit Tennessee, Mississippi and Kentucky has risen to 19.

The deaths of two additional people in Mississippi are being called weather-related traffic deaths.

Officials in Nashville are preparing for more deaths and for the Cumberland River, which winds through the Music City, to crest more than 11 feet, putting portions of downtown in danger of the kind of damage experienced by thousands of residents whose homes were swamped by flash floods.

At least 11 are dead in Tennessee, six in Mississippi and two in Kentucky.
