    Devastation for miles

    Prayers go out to all in affected areas
    I'm watching footage of Gallatin and it looks like a tornado ,acting like a buzz saw, sliced through and left close to nothing in a swath of about 100 feet - while houses right on the other side of the street lost only some shingles or windows. there were shots of 1/2 million dollar homes completely leveled to the foundations

    that would be unfortunate even if Gallatin was the only affected area, but there were touchdowns of tornadoes all over Tennessee today

    hope everyone's alright

    This is similar to the tornados that wreaked havoc throughout the midstate today. Would not be surprised if the tornado that wrecked Gallatin is ultimately classified as an F4

    Thanks for the thoughts from everyone not in Middle TN.
    Unfortunately it is still here....moving east....McMinnville (2 deaths), Sparta, Spencer, Cookeville, Crossville....

    Another line of storms coming up from Mississippi in a few more hours.

    God Bless.......

    My in-laws live a mile from Vol State where it hit. Apparently, it only missed them by about a quarter mile. Lots of hail but they were lucky.

    Sincerest apologies

    I honestly hope everyone affected by any such storms as these were able to get out of the storms way - wherever they live - Tennesse or otherwise

    10 people are confirmed killed so far in Middle TN alone
    but EMS can't even get to some areas due to debris
    in many areas they are having to go house to house to look for survivors

    No apology necessary at all. I worded that wrong.
    I just wanted to say thanks for all the thoughts and prayers from everyone that is not here. Thanks so much.
