20 Confirmed Deaths From Tennessee Flood

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Tennessee officials have confirmed
another flood death from Memphis, bringing the state's death toll
from last weekend's storms to 20. The national toll is 30 people.
Police found a body on Wednesday but have not released that
person's identity. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency
confirmed the death.
Memphis police had been looking for 32-year-old Terrance
Williams, who went missing after his car ran into flood waters
Saturday. He called a friend saying he had to abandon the vehicle
and hasn't been heard from since.
Flash floods were blamed in the deaths of at least 19 people in
Tennessee, including nine in Nashville. An additional 10 deaths
from the weekend storms were reported in Kentucky and Mississippi,
and one person was killed over the weekend by a tornado in
Tennessee.
