Nashville still strong and already mobilizing to clean up and rebuild
Words can't describe the utter devastation that has crippled parts of Nashville, TN in the last 24 hours. In the early morning hours of March 3, a confirmed EF-3 tornado ripped through the northern end of the downtown area hitting Germantown, moving on to East Nashville, Hermitage, Donelson and Mt. Juliet along with other neighborhoods.
Officials from the Nashville Fire Department said they responded to at least 40 structure collapses throughout town. In total, 140 buildings have been destroyed with death tolls reaching 25 and possibly growing as of press time.
Nashville City Mayor John Cooper expressed remorse for those who have been displaced and has promised that the city and surrounding areas affected will rebuild.
Governor Bill Lee issued the following statement via Twitter:
The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, within hours of the tornado, had started a fund to assist in helping those affected by the tornado. To donate and lend your support to those affected, visit cfmt.org.
