I heard that Yes Masters got hit pretty hard. Other than that, I have not heard of any major damage to other studios. A lot of homes were damaged or destroyed and downtown is still flooded.

They heard from neighbors that some water had gotten into their basement, but the house sitter was on top of it and managed to secure gear / instruments from being damaged.

Nothing but heart felt understanding, prayers and best wishes to Nashville from New Orleans.

I'm OK here but homes and freeways are under water ten blocks away in all directions.

It is on 16th Ave. South by the way...on the row. The main reason it flooded over here is because the storm / sewer drains were so full they were shooting water (and maybe sewage) up like a geyser and it came under the doors etc.

Nope. The flood damage crew is there working and it looks like it will be Friday before I can get back in. I have one project that is supposed to done on Friday and then 2 more mix projects right behind it. BUT my family is safe and there are others that are WAY worse off than I am.

I saw a video of some of the flood damage in Franklin, but I don't know how bad it is in Nashville. It all looks pretty bad over there. :(

I was in Franklin last week during the flooding, it was absolutely unreal. The studio I was at wasn't effected fortunately, but as we were driving around the east side of town it was astoundin to see the damage. This was only shortly after the flooding actually started, I can't even imagine how bad it is now... Prayers go out to everyone down there

Yep, got flooded 3 times. Luckily none of the gear was damaged, but I will have to replace the whole wood floor (control room and tracking room) and that means everything has to be moved out, pain in the ass and quite costly. I had a mix starting on May first and the guys are here from Australia, so no way of moving the session. Won't be able to get to anything until June. Sucks. But other people are way worse off, so I don't want to complain. Downtown looks really bad.

I live in South Nashville and my wife and I worked our butts of for a day and a half removing water from the lower level of our home. My studio is also housed down there. We had 3 wet vacs going constantly and were able to keep the water down to 2-3 inches at it's highest. If we were out of town, or I was on the road like usual we would have had 3-4 feet of water EASILY and everything would have been a total loss. The damage was mostly to the floors, and no gear was harmed. I feel sooooo lucky to get out of this with only having to replace a few rooms of flooring. So many other people I know here lost their homes, vehicles, etc. It was insane!!!!

Did any of the dry wall even a 1/4 of an inch get wet ? If so you are probaly going to have to cut it out ! Water is not the long term problem mold is ! Home owners insurance will not cover flood or mold !!

Fortunately the Inglewood SoundBarn is on high ground, and was unaffected. I am wondering how some of the other folks here in East Nashville fared. there are LOTS of studios on this side of town too! Thanks to all for the concern.

Luckily when I built it I left a gap between the dry wall and floor. No dry wall in the studio got wet, but there is one wall in the lounge area that has about 1/2" at the bottom that is damp. We are going to cut that out in the next few days.

I was not affected personally, but I'm sure those that were will appreciate anything you can give. According to the red cross website:

Sound Check got hit really hard. Our studio is just a couple blocks away, but luckily is on a hill overlooking the river and did not flood.

Battle Tapes, a studio in Inglewood, had about 6 feet of water. They had to move all of the equipment into their kitchen in living. The owners, Jeremy, wife Candice, is undergoing breast cancer treatment (only 26 years old) so that's a lot of stress in that household.

Sad to see this happen. SoundCheck was an amazing place last time I visited. Met a lot of amazing people. Only the best wishes for all impacted by the floods at SoundCheck and around Nashville as well.
