"NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- The Cumberland River having reached its crest was little comfort amid fears that receding floodwaters could reveal more victims of deadly storms that swamped much of middle Tennessee.
The death toll was at 29 across three states, but hope was slim that number would stand Tuesday as recovery begins in earnest.
The flooding, which pushed the river's muddy waters into Nashville's historic downtown, came amid severe storms that brought flash floods so swift many could not escape.
Residents and authorities know they'll find widespread property damage in inundated areas, but dread even more devastating discoveries."
