A tornado struck Nashville, Tennessee in the early hours of Tuesday (March 3) morning, killing at least two people, destroying around 40 buildings and leaving tens of thousands of people without power.
Nashville’s Emergency Operations Center announced it had opened an emergency shelter with running water in a farmer’s market to help displaced residents.
Several people took to Twitter to say they were without power in the region. Some posted videos of lightning flashing across the sky.
