Death toll from Nashville tornadoes rises to 19, officials say. The governor has declared a state of emergency. https://t.co/2MJXa01zf1— The Washington Post (@washingtonpost) March 3, 2020
For comparison, an F5 ripped through Oklahoma in 2013 killing around 25 people, obliterated countless homes. No known confirmation yet of how massive this tornado was. In 2011 an F5 ripped through Joplin, MO killing 158 people and creating $2.8 billion in damages. My point being, please help in any form you can. Many have lost everything.
We ducked around this cell and landed at john tune airport around 11:30 last night. Glad we landed when we did. Wouldn’t have been good an hour later. It was the cell that turned into the tornado. Lot of people lost their homes. No one comes together as a city like Nashville does pic.twitter.com/qvCjrYNu0x— Dierks Bentley (@DierksBentley) March 3, 2020

Our hearts are heavy for our Nashville community this morning. We were fortunate not to sustain any damage at the Opry House, but many of our neighbors, friends and fans are coping with unimaginable loss. Our Opry family is thinking of everyone affected by this devastation. pic.twitter.com/uc97lwiyHn— Grand Ole Opry (@opry) March 3, 2020
