There have been deaths, thousands of displaced people, one of our 2 water treatment plants is completely under water, as are many of the surrounding waste treatment facilities. Residents have been asked to conserve all water and I've heard talk of sewage plants getting close to having to dump all waste into the Cumberland River since the facilities are flooded.
