At just after 4 pm, we see another line of showers heading towards the Cookeville area. We will certainly not see the amount of rainfall that folks in the Nashville area have seen. The damage estimates are still unknown, but most certainly will be in the 10's of millions, if not 100's of millions. There are unconfirmed reports that up to nine people have lost their lives across Tennessee.
