A tornado that ripped apart a Nashville, Tennessee, suburb Friday had winds of almost 170 miles per hour.

Tennessee Emergency Management Agency spokesman Randy Harris says the Sumner County tornado has been tentatively classified as an F-3 on the Fujita scale.

The top of the scale is an F-5.

This is another day of clean-up in Sumner County, where nine people died.

Three more people were killed by a twister in Warren County, southeast of Nashville.

In hard-hit Gallatin, members of the Hartsville Pike Church of Christ sang "Shelter in the Time of Storm" as they gathered for Sunday's service.

The congregation of Metro Baptist Church met in a school gymnasium -- because their church was leveled by the swirling winds.
