NOTE: This has NOT yet been declared a FEMA Major Disaster.

The storm that hit Tennessee brought the second-highest two-day rainfall total in Nashville history, and the most for a single day in March. More than 100 people needed to be rescued from flooded cars, apartments and homes, authorities said.

Meanwhile, the flash flood warnings remained in effect for Nashville, Franklin and Brentwood all the way until 11 a.m. as creeks and rivers continued to rise , according to the National Weather Service.

By Sunday afternoon, Mayor John Cooper had declared a local state of emergency because of the flooding. Flood waters on the Harpeth and Cumberland rivers continued to rise as expected based on the rainfall.

Still, in the Bellevue area, it was a worrisome sign. Homeowners continued to prepare for the worst. Roads remained closed.

Swift-water rescue crews rescued at least 130 people from automobiles, apartments and houses, Nashville Fire Department spokesperson Joseph Pleasant said.
