Nashville videos flood YouTube

Nashville and surrounding areas in Tennessee are enduring historic floods right now, after receiving more than 13 inches of rain in two days.  With cars floating down the street, popular stores underwater, and rivers rushing where dry land used to be, Nashville has been transformed and its residents are documenting the scene and uploading their videos to YouTube, where they're getting tens of thousands of views.

Here are a few videos that show just how extreme the conditions are:
