22 people were killed in Saturday’s flooding in Waverly

The weekend flash flood in middle Tennessee has upended lives and livelihoods.

About 17 inches of rain fell Saturday near Waverly, Tennessee. The heavy rain led to quick rises in a nearby creek. The floodwaters inundated homes and businesses, sweeping some of them off their foundations.

Twenty-two people were killed, and four are still missing as of Tuesday afternoon.

Emergency officials said hundreds of buildings in the area will likely be uninhabitable.

Here are some photos from FOX Weather multimedia journalist Robert Ray who is in Waverly, covering the aftermath.
