FOX 17 News

A west Nashville musician has nothing left after several feet of water flood his apartment Wednesday night.

Video shows the extensive damage left behind.

Mud, water and sewage is covering the floor of his home at Hillwood Apartments off Charlotte Pike.

Frederick Dukes has lived here for three years and never experienced something like this.

Dukes explained what it was like waking up to destruction to his home recording studio.

“Water was coming down through my door my window,” Dukes said. “Looked like an aquarium because everything was underwater.

Dukes said he first thought it was his laundry room making all the noise – but soon realized it was intense flooding.

There is a GoFundMe page set up to help Dukes get back on his feet.
