NASHVILLE (AP) — The Nashville Public Library is helping to mark the fifth anniversary of the historic May 2010 floods that affected much of Middle and West Tennessee.

The floods killed nearly two dozen people and caused billions in damages, more than $2 billion in Nashville alone.

On Friday, the downtown library is inviting the public to see and hear stories included in its Flood 2010 Collection. The event will be from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Curators and archivists from the library's special collections division spent 18 months in the field after the flood, collecting oral histories from neighbors, volunteers and others who experienced the floods firsthand.
