6. That is certainly higher on the EF scale that we are used to in

and close to Dixie Alley. Usually, we get them around EF1 to EF3 at most. That one looks like it might be EF3 to EF4. That much destruction is pretty serious.

13. I was there for that one. Scary as hell!

I have good friends who live on a large farm in Wilson County near Lebanon. Hope all is well with them. Just texted them. Hope to hear something soon.

8. Nashville news coverage and an eye witness video. Two killed as of now.

Local coverage (WSM):

Tornado moves across Nashville and Middle TN; claims 2 lives in East Nashville

Eye-witness video of the tornado:


Radar before it hit:



Very damaging storm. Some areas had hail the size of baseballs!

That's right in the general area where I was raised.......

11. Crossville. We're under a tornado watch until 6am. Were under a

warning until 2:45am. Raining now. I live in a motorhome, in a campground just off i40 east. Sleepless in Crossville. Son and granddaughter/family live in White House just outside Nashville. Haven't heard from them. Guessing they're okay
