EF-0 tornado recorded in Morgan County, NWS confirms

At least 23 people were killed when tornadoes struck MIddle Tennessee overnight.

MORGAN COUNTY, Tenn. — An EF-0 tornado was recorded in Morgan County near Lancing Tuesday, the National Weather Service confirmed.

It moved roughly 80 to 85 mph and NWS said the damage path is 200 yards wide and roughly 3.9-miles long.

Survey crews found some significant tree damage and some carport and roof damage.

No injuries have been reported.

District Attorney General Russell Johnson posted on Facebook that Sheriff Wayne Potter has taken inmates from the jail to help clear roads.

Dispatchers said there were a few houses with blown-out windows and downed trees on Barnett Bridge Road, Genesis Road and Nelson Road.

At least 23 people were killed when tornadoes struck Middle Tennessee overnight.

One of the twisters caused severe damage across downtown Nashville on Tuesday, leaving blown-down walls and roofs, snapped power lines, huge broken trees, and city streets in gridlock.

Another wiped out much of a subdivision in Putnam County, east of Nashville, where the sheriff says more survivors could be trapped in the rubble of their homes.

Damaged polling stations have been closed, forcing Super Tuesday voters to wait in long lines at other sites. President Donald Trump said he'd visit the area Friday.
