Dangerous Tornado Near Nashville

It appears that Nashville, Tennessee was spared from a tornado that threatened the city Friday evening, which instead ripped through Dickson, just to the southwest.

Many people in Colorado Springs have family in Tennessee. One mom has been praying her sister is OK.

"She spent last night apparently in the stairwell,” Dana Kasper said. Her sister lives in northern Nashville.

“They had tornado warnings, and her and her daughter spent the night in the stairwell, cause that was the safest place that they had in their house."

People all over the Midwest and Southeast have been affected by a string of tornadoes.

"Just to see so much devastation--it's outrageous,” Kasper said.

She thinks it’s important that KKTV has covered the storms.

"For so many military out here--there are so many families out east,” Kasper said. "And I think it's very important that they kind of know."

    I was within 100 yrds. when the Tornado hit Goodlettsville a few years back & have never been so close to the destruction they cause. I was working in downtown Nashville, when the "Small One" came through also. Only, by the grace of God, has Nashville been as "Lucky" as it has been so far. I PRAY that a big one does not hit the Nashville area or very close , and if it does, GOD help us all ! Can you imagine the live lost & total destruction if a F4 OR F5 were to hit within a 25 mile radius of Nashville ! It's time's like this where we should remember to tell our loved one's EVERYDAY how we love and care for them. Again..we have been VERY LUCKY, but sooner or later, our luck will run out, and then we are in for a worldfull of heartbreak and loss!

    The corporate office of my company is in Nashville and they had no power as of 4:00pm MST. I had just left there the day before the devastating flood a couple of years ago. A guy that I work with that lives down there had to rescue his Mom and watched her car float down the street. Mother Nature is tough.I'm sorry for all of the folks that are dealing with these storms.

    It's not hard, but close. It's called the thunderstorm factory. It's a privately owned LLC. They receive payments from people, towns, or governments for various thunderstorms. Basic, deluxe, premium, and platinum packages are available. The workers then make and deliver the product. The hailboy molds and shapes the Hailstone, then throws them downward. The tornado man controls the tornado and is paid the most commission. A lot is riding on a premium or platinum package, which sounds like was ordered in Tennessee. Hats off to the hard working folks for their hard work and dedication. Without them, there would be no thunderstorms.
