The rising Cumberland River continued to create problems in Nashville overnight, even though the rain finally stopped. Opryland Hotel and Convention Center was evacuated around midnight and guests were moved to McGavock High School. Nashville Fire Dept. Chief Charles Shannon said the hotel reported only minor water damage but evacuated as a precaution. Downtown businesses and bars closed around midnight due to rising waters which threatened to flood the tourist district. Many downtown roads are still closed.
