Readyville still in place, although another line of storms coming through. I was a block away from the biggest tornado I"ve ever seen. I was on Broad and Church in M’boro and it looked about 1/2 a block wide over on Old Fort Pkwy.
Another cell coming through.
You still there StGermain?
Yep. I think the worst is mostly past.
In Murfreesboro there are two confirmed dead so far, one being a 9 month old baby. My cop neighbor says one touched down about a mile from our houses.
I’m in Chattanooga, and our center cleared the entire production floor (1200 people?) for a warning for about an hour.
Aesiron - Where did they put you all?
Fine in ClarksStupid. We had our wipeout tornado in 1999.
Just got off a 14 hour shift==> glad to hear your’re okay StG. But loosing a nine month old baby to storm struck a raw nerve. I feel for the family–it’s got to hurt like hell right now.
We were put in training rooms along the east side of the building.
We were stuck there until 5:30 (I was scheduled to get off at 4:45, so I was a bit grumpy), but Blue Cross Blue Shield, which is in the same building, only held their employees until 5:00, and my best friend’s fiancee was outside waiting for him the entire time. She said it didn’t look like anything but a normal storm here. Being in the valley, tornadoes don’t touch down here that often.
Murfreesboro was a pretty scary place to be for awhile yesterday. But after that line of tornadoes moved through, it was beautiful outside.
Hendersonville area here – we actually had a bunch of drawings to leave early yesterday due to the weather. Luckily it all skipped us. My husband is in Tullahoma for drill – they brought them in from the field when the storms rolled through, but their chow hall tent was blown away – guess it’ll be MREs today and tomorrow.
My family, friends and I are all fine, but it came damn close to me. I clocked it today–I rode out the storm about 1/2 mile from where the mom and 9 week old baby were killed.
I’m glad to hear you’re OK, but a little disturbed that you apparently have enough tornado experience to compare them.
Angel, LOL at ClarksStupid. Wasn’t expecting that, though it fits.
I’m in Memphis so missed it all. The sister I actually like was in the middle of it and though she escaped injury entirely, it was a near thing, as much damanage was done to the building where she works. She was distressingly near to where that poor woman and her baby were.
I was in Gallatin at the hospital right after it went through. I did some quick calling around to see if my workplace was still standing in Smyrna. It was, so I went on to work from there.
Glad everyone rode it out unscathed!
