CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. — Clarksville’s homeless and displaced are being told to move to Kentucky if they want a roof over their heads.

The city’s only shelter is still out of commission, thanks to the May flood. Months later, it’s still taking a toll on those who need help the most.

For the first time since May’s flooding, Clarksville’s Salvation Army store is now open for business, but the long-awaited recovery is bittersweet.

“(It) makes you sick to your stomach if you have to turn someone away,” said Major Grady Pearson of the Clarksville Salvation Army.

The chapter’s shelter, which can normally house up to 64 people, is still closed, and it’s the only overnight shelter in town.
