All of about 1, 500 guests were evacuated overnight from the Opryland Hotel, northeast of the downtown area. The Cumberland River continues to rise at Nashville, but is nearing its crest. Floodwater has spilled onto a couple of downtown streets near the riverfront and restaurants and bars in the tourist district are closed.
