NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Unusually heavy summer rainfalls in Tennessee have given the agencies involved in flood control and emergency management a chance to show that they have learned to cooperate after the disastrous missteps of 2010.
That's the year heavy flooding of the Cumberland River and its tributaries killed 26 people in the state and caused more than $2 billion in damage in Nashville.
Back then, poor communication between the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Weather Service caused officials to fail to predict major flooding in Nashville until hours after it had happened.
Although flash flooding in Nashville on Thursday was nowhere near the scale of the 2010 floods, officials with the city, the weather service and the corps said they were in constant communication this time.
