Alert Issued to Four States After Massive Tornados Sweep Through Tennessee

Multiple massive tornados swept through Tennessee on Saturday — and at least one was reported in Kentucky — forcing people to take shelter and leaving a trail of devastation and damages in their wake.

The National Weather Service issued a tornado watch for several areas across four states — Arkansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, and Tennessee — shortly before noon on Saturday.

The tornado warnings started to pour in a short time later, as did reports of damages.

“DRESDEN, TN! Take cover immediately. This is a particularly dangerous situation with a large, damaging #tornado heading toward town any minute,” Reed Timmer posted.

“Large potentially catastrophic #tornado over Hendersonville TN right now. Worst case scenario,” Timmer added a short time later.

The local FOX affiliate shared video of the large tornado that swept through Nashville, showing explosions as the massive storm reportedly damaged power stations.

Others shared video of the Nashville tornado from other angles.

Another tornado was reported in Clarksville.

Reports of damage began to flow in even as the storms continued to rage all over the state. Homes and businesses took the brunt of the devastation.
