What was Curt at Flopping Aces saying the other day? Tennessee’s Under Water, And Nobody Gives A Dang. I guess the Tennesseans are the wrong color?
NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - The release of water from a dam upstream of Nashville during historic flooding has prompted a U.S. Senate inquiry into whether the public was adequately warned about rising waters downstream.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers said Tuesday the controlled release of water from Old Hickory Dam the weekend of May 1-2 prevented the lake from spilling over the dam and flooding Nashville with an additional four feet of water.
Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., has asked for a hearing on how well the corps and other state and federal agencies delivered information to businesses and individuals in the midst of the flooding that killed nine in Nashville alone.
Alexander said during a session on Monday he wants to ensure that officials are taking the right steps to control floods and to keep people informed, "particularly that we have clear and correct information about the rising water and that we communicate it as broadly as we should." [...]
This is the same group that something to do with the levees during the Katrina Hurricane, right? And these are the same people that say "that we communicate it as broadly as we should".
I get it.
