NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -The cleanup continues in many parts of Middle Tennessee following torrential rainfall and areas of flash flooding this week that left several without homes, cars and other belongings.
In north Nashville and the Madison area, where some people were stranded on their rooftops during Thursday morning's rising waters, Friday was a day to dry out and take stock of the situation.
There is a growing sentiment among homeowners that they will not stand by and see this happen again.
"It's going to take a miracle to get us through this mess," said resident Mike Moore. "We were just starting to make a good dent in the mortgage, and the first flood came through."
His was among many homes along Ewingdale drive swamped by flood water Thursday, reminding many here of the historic May 2010 flood. Right across the street from Moore's home is a green space where Metro purchased homes damaged in 2010 and torn them down.
"We can't do it again," Moore said.
