Someone said there were people dead in Mississippi. Any information will be welcome. I was so sorry to hear about this. It is tragic. The people on TV seemed to have such a good attitude, realizing that material things can be replaced, but the people are important.
Most of the deaths in Tennessee occurred in three or four counties in West Tennessee and three or four counties in Middle Tennessee. In Middle Tennessee most of the deaths occurred in Sumner (7), Macon (13), and Trousdale (2) Counties. The local news sites online give the sad tally by location; you can Google for WSMV and read more.

We still have nearly 200 people "UN-ACCOUNTED FOR" in Macon County...not to assume they are all dead...but just can't be located....I've worked hard to keep everyone informed about the situation in Macon County. The pastor of a local church along with his wife and two kids were killed yesterday (Thursday)...he had been helping 5 families cope with the loss of loved ones...a bigtime tragedy....more here..

Thanks for all of the information, everyone. We are not that far away here in N. GA, but we still don't hear much other than the national news coverage.

It is amazing, Tinman, to think of that 11 month-old baby surviving such a horrific storm. It is sad to learn that his mother didn't not make it, but it looks like he has a happy, loving grandmother to care for him. What a bright spot amid so much sadness.

Our hearts and prayers are still with everyone who has been touched by this terrible storm. Gives us all pause for thought and thankfulness for our blessings.

Default Not Rolled Over

I was thankful to be in Marshall, Texas the night of the storms. The next morning family and friends, knowing that I was on the way to Memphis, called to learn if my tractor trailer was one of those that got rolled over by the winds. I told them I'd been teaching my rig some new tricks but had not yet taught it to roll over.

It was uninjured and was found more than a mile from where it had disappeared.
