Tropical Storm Fred

A Rural Tennessee community was pummeled on Saturday, August 21, 2021, with up to 17 inches (43 cm) of rain in less than 24 hours, shattering previous state records for one-day rainfall by more than three inches, leading to flooding that has killed up to 18 people and leaving a possible 21 more missing. The flooding left rescue teams scrambling to find those missing in Waverly, the town that was hit the hardest and now the site of collapsed houses, piles of debris and flipped vehicles. As of August 25, a damage assessment conducted in Humphreys County showed 271 homes were destroyed by the flooding, another 160 homes had major damage and 28 had minor damage.
