What we know about the tornadoes that killed at least 24 people in Nashville, Middle Tennessee

A powerful and deadly storm moving through Middle Tennessee spawned a tornado that touched down in Nashville early Tuesday morning, cutting a swath of destruction that stretched through the city for miles.

The storm destroyed portions of several neighborhoods and business districts in the central part of Nashville before moving into the city’s eastern suburbs and beyond. Tornadoes impacted several counties in West and Middle Tennessee, according to damage reports cited by TEMA.

“There are still people that are unaccounted for … we don’t know the specific numbers about that right now,” Lee said at a press conference on Tuesday evening.
