Severe Tornado & Flash Flood Warnings Sweep Middle Tennessee

NWS Nashville / X

A number of storm fronts sweeping through Middle Tennessee has triggered warnings for tornadoes and flash floods that have persisted throughout the day.

Anticipation of further severe weather conditions remains high as the region braces for additional disturbances expected to arise overnight.

Tornado Sightings & Damage Reports

The National Weather Service has confirmed several tornado sightings in the area. Reports indicate a likely tornado touched down near Columbia and moved into northwest Marshall County. In the wake of the storm, the Marshall County 911 dispatch center has received numerous reports of damage, particularly in the Blackburn Hollow area near Tobe Robertson Road.

A Spring Hill local has even reached out to the community on social media, seeking urgent assistance and resources. The resident’s plea highlighted a dire need for chainsaws, round pen panels, and additional hands to aid in a critical situation: their barn had been destroyed, leaving a mare and her foal trapped within the debris. Our prayers are with Judy and her family.

Earlier in the day, a tornado was reported at mile marker 19 on Interstate 24, followed closely by another sighting northwest of Coopertown. While these events have led to fallen trees and closed roads due to flooding, thankfully, no major injuries have been reported at this time.

Weather Warnings & Watches

A tornado watch will remain in effect for Middle Tennessee until 9 p.m. as residents brace for more potential severe weather through early Thursday morning. The communities have been on high alert with the possibility of additional thunderstorms that could bring further destruction or complications to the already affected areas.

Staying Updated

Local news channels and online resources continue to provide rolling coverage of the damage reports for those seeking more information and updates on the storm’s impact across Middle Tennessee. Residents are encouraged to keep a close eye on weather advisories and stay prepared for any further developments.
