Totally wigged out by this. I can handle blizzards. Tornadoes freak me out.

Thanks!
NOAA Weather Radio. We have a wind up emergency radio with a weather band on it to listen to. Our "Go Bag" is by the door just in case.

I know it's a bit late, but any station, 94.9, 98.5, 101.5, should have regular updates for something like this. 89.5 is the local NPR, and 910 AM is a Johnson City station.

10 news was awesome last night. Our power went out before the storm was even in Seymour, but after a few minutes it came back on. Only lost satellite TV for about 30 seconds. Saw the pictures of golfball size hail. Wunderground said there was a tornado 3 mi south of Seymour yesterday!

I have 3 acquaintances in southeast TN. In Cleveland, Charleston, and just north of Ten Mile.
If you have more updates, please post them here- I'd really appreciate it!
Hik, you still ok?

We are fine in Knoxville! I still have cable, internet and phone out from Wednesday but that was more of a tree issue and not a storm issue. Hopefully, I will be on soon.

Worst storms were south of Nashville, possibly near Jackson, all around Chattanooga. There were also horrible storms in the southeast corner all the way up to possibly Maryville. There may have been something out in the Crossville area as well.

In all my years of being a weather buff and watching the radar I have never seen so many tornadoes throughout the country - from the Midwest to the South - and never so darn large. It was horrifying.

I'm in NW Knox and we got power back about 10 minutes ago. Took a quick drive this morning. Lots of trees down, lots of power lines and poles down. We were good until that last cell came over. Power went out around 10:30'ish last night.

Saw that cell coming from Oak Ridge into Anderson and wondered if anyone would be affected. It was small but that is all it takes. Some of those hook echoes around Chattanooga and up in Kentucky, Indiana and southern Illinois were HUGE.

Thanks guys. I'm going to get a weather radio, but it's also helpful to know where to tune in for more info.

SO glad it fizzled out before it was a concern for this immediate area.

Our friends that live in Ten Mile said they didn't get too much...some rain and some hail. I heard that Cleveland was hit pretty hard but don't know for sure. We have to go there Monday if the dentist is open. We will see then. Tennessee didn't get hit as hard as the other states . But it was very scary though. Thank god, but feel bad for the ones killed or lost their homes. So sad.

I wanted to commend the Knoxville TV network stations for their fantastic reporting of the storm situation on 3/2/12.

The Weather Channel was doing a great job too but they had to cover a much larger area.
