Julie Roberts and Family Rescued During Nashville Flood
Singer Julie Roberts, her mother, sister, and the family’s four dogs were all trapped by rapidly rising flood waters during the recent devastating storms that hit Middle Tennessee. Rescuers had to evacuate Julie, her family and their pets from the second floor of their Nashville home.
“It was crazy and horrifying,” Julie tells FOX News of the events of Monday, May 3. “Rescue boats were coming by for hours.”
Julie says she last saw the family’s three cars floating down the street.
“We need your prayers,” Julie says of Nashville and the surrounding area. “It looks pretty disastrous for myself, my neighbors and everyone in that area of Nashville.”
Julie is one of many country singers affected by the historical flooding. Dierks Bentley, whose basement flooded, had to cancel several shows due to hazardous driving conditions. Naomi Judd‘s buffalo escaped after her fence was washed away by the strong currents. And Joe Dee Messina returned home from touring to find five feet of water in her house.
