The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and the National Weather Service took heat in congressional hearings after Nashville was caught off guard by the rapid rise of the Cumberland River, which crested almost 12 feet above flood stage. The Corps apologized for its handling of the crisis, and the weather service admitted that it did not clearly communicate the magnitude of the flood. Still, a slew of lawsuits followed. The agencies have since developed ways to share information, with dam operators now telephoning the weather service to report water releases.
