Will and Rob

Hi and thank you for checking in! I'm so glad to hear you're doing well Rob. Will, I'm located near the top of the L in Nashville on your map. The tornado went south of me on the other side of the lake in Wilson County. This was closer than the 98 tornado but not as close as the 2007 tornadoes that hit within 2 miles. |
The damage in Nashville, the eastern suburbs and Cookeville is horrible. The tornado was an EF3 here and an EF4 near Rob. The EF3 traveled 60.5 miles on the ground. The severely-damaged section of Nashville is where I drive nearly every day and those roads are blocked.
It just blows my mind how many people make it out alive and even uninjured when an entire building collapses.
There are so many transplants in East Nashville and Nashville now that many were taken off-guard. One of the main reporters didn't even know a tornado had hit Nashville previously and kept reporting that it was the first time a tornado had hit the city. He was standing on one of the same streets devastated in 1998. I keep wondering when someone from Channel 5 will correct him. The same spot was also hit in 1933.
I would post some pictures but it's such a pain on Photobucket now.
Thank y'all for checking in!
