Richland Creek and the Cumberland River meet up to fill-up the Reostone Quarry pit.

This Youtube video sent RCWA yesterday shows the astonishing episode of flooding from the Cumberland River meeting up with Richland Creek to overflow and fill the many story deep rock quarry pit, so quickly, the Channel 5 news reporters are beyond belief.
The footage begins showing aerials of the Cumberland River flooding during the broadcast of the Govenor's press conference on May 2nd, then jumps to a roaring waterfall at the Reostone quarry pit, becoming a lake, so quickly, that the Channel 5 news reporters gasp in disbelief.
One comment on Youtube said, "I work for TDOT at the complex next door and one of my guys inspect that quarry. He said it is roughly 500 feet deep, 1/2 mile long and 1/4 mile wide."
