The article by CNN talks about the Nashville flood last May. It tells how there was an error in communication about how serious the flood will be and explains it in detail. The most important part of this article economically was "more than $2 billion in damages,". This mistake by the National Weather Service and dam operators would us all. Although charity organizations will help the majority of the money will come from state and federal taxes. This will cause a raise in taxes which will take money out of Americans pockets. This hurts the overall economy because there will be less money being put into it. Realistically this flood probably had a small impact on the US economy if it had happened in a much larger place it would have a much greater impact.
