Adaeze ElechiI’d heard on the radio that Nashville flooded. Those of my friends who still live and go to school there updated their Facebook statuses saying how the water wouldn’t stop coming down. I hadn’t actually seen any images of it. This morning, while on BBC’s Web site, I found these pictures of Music City. It’s shocking and disorienting to see how the well-kept streets I used to walk and drive up and down during college have now turned to browned streams.
