Tenn. Flood Victims Slowly Recovering

Ad Feedback

The death toll from the flooding in Tennessee now stands at 20.

In most areas the floodwaters have receded. People have returned to work and power has been restored.

The Federal Emergency Management Agency estimates the record flooding caused about $1 billion in damage.

Farmers have been hit the hardest by the flooding. Many of their fields remain wet and will not dry out in time to get their crops planted. It has been estimated that the transportation costs for fertilizer alone could go up as much as 25 percent.

"I had all my corn in and was fixing to start planting the rest of my cotton the day it started raining," farmer Jimmy Hargett said. "Most of my fields have water on them."
