Nashville Under Water, Under-Reported?

Nashville is under water right now, but you may not realize how bad it is with the almost constant coverage of the oil spill in Louisiana and the inept Times Square bomber. Yesterday Newsweek’s The Gaggle blog commented on the lack of coverage and that Google results for the spill come in at 13,800 and the bomb at 8,390 — to the flood’s paltry 2,430. It seems that it was poor timing for the Cumberland River waters to rise (not that there’s ever a good time…) when there are other more dramatic events taking over the headlines.

Check out the Boston Globe’s Big Picture blog or the American Red Cross‘s flickr photostream for a look at the situation — it’s pretty impressive.
