I never really think it’s going to happen. And now it has. I worried about my car getting dinged and now I dread seeing what’s happened when the sun comes up. Five Points in East Nashville hit hard. Germantown. I’m so sorry for all affected. The entire world has gone crazy these days, but I Believe In Nashville.

Brings back bad memories of the April tornado in 1998 that killed a young man in Centennial Park.

I have had about three hours sleep. I was up nearly all night watching Channel Five when their lights flickered and they lost power. It was barely noticeable as they have generators but Brie was doing the weather and commented the power went.

Henry and his cameraman went outside to film the tornado that he saw coming at them.

This was all at 12:30 this morning.

As of this 6:00 AM writing, six are known to have lost their lives.

I am only familiar with Nashville from the news, so my comments are what they spoke about in the news. Germantown was hit hard and so was East Nashville. Schools, the Ag center where there are animals housed, I think.

Before the tornado hit Nashville, a lady sent Channel Five a foto of five hail stones that were the size of extra large eggs — you know when hail is big enough to kill someone, things are not good.

They speculate the tornado was an EF-3 but the NWS will have to determine that. They also commented that it was on the ground for an inordinately long amount of time.

I am in the SE tip of Bedford County, we are catching the tail of this storm as I write this. We aren’t on wind watch but there is plenty of lightening and pouring rain. We have been hit by lightening several times over the years.

I was living in the rurals of western PA when the May ‘85 tornadoes (plural) came thru. The town I worked in was completely leveled. I lived in the country in those days, too. All sorts of things from town were dropping out of the sky, in the horse pasture.

Folks can’t change what has happened. The best they can do is to throw their shoulders back, take things one heart beat at a time, and pray. Recovery from this is not going to happen in a few months. My thought and prayers to all who have been affected, especially those who have lost friends and family members.

I am living out of the country right now, but have a house in Hendersonville. My son and his family live in East Nashville. They are ok thank god, but he sounded so very shook up on the phone. He said their neighborhood looks like a war zone, and the businesses at Five Points are decimated. I'm feeling rather shaken up and helpless.

Yeah, It's bringing back memories of the 2008 Tornado here in Atlanta for me. Tornado did very similar to what it did in Nashville it seems. Moved from West Atlanta, cut through the area around vine city, hit the Georgia Dome, CNN Center, Centennial Olympic park, Downtown Atlanta buildings, cut across all the way to East Atlanta before it uplifted. It really tore up Downtown, high rises and all for a while. We couldn't work in our office building 101 Marietta St. at the time due to falling glass. Really scary situation. I really pray for the citizens of Nashville right now, I feel really close to the city. Was listening to Nashville radio on I Heart this morning and a guy was on the radio this morning and broke down on how he lost his business but was blessed to be alive. Had me in tears...

My prayers for Nashville. I have folk I know, there. I've seen the pics. They look bad. I hear much of the East Side looks real bad. I saw the Donelson School, with what looks like an 18-wheeler on top of one of the school buildings. Wow!

Horrible. Prayers up for the people of Nashville and for those who were killed, seriously hurt, or lost all. What can you do when a tornado strikes in the middle of the night when everybody is sleeping. What a horror. God bless them and pray for them.

Be careful and safe out there folks. My thoughts are with you guys and I wish you all the best. Condolences to anyone that has lost a family member friend or pet.

Spring and tornado season is on it's way. I love spring but hate the severe weather potential.
