Between the oil spill in the gulf and the attempted car bombing in Times Square, the massive flooding in Tennessee did not get much national media attention this past week. In fact, Newsweek wrote an article about it titled Why the Media Ignored the Nashville Flood.
We’re always a little bit more interested in what happens when cities flood because Sacramento is considered — after New Orleans — the major U.S. history most in danger of a catastrophic flood (though our ranking may change after seeing what happened to Nashville).
I’m also adding this list to A Compilation Of “The Best…” Lists About Natural Disasters.
