Nashveille tornado's death roll increases as more damage revealed on the morning after the strom

224

The morning after the devastating tornado walloped the parts of Nashville last night revealed the heartbreaking picture of outcomes with the small airplanes at airport tossed, power lines down and dozen buildings collapsed.

Police and fire crews alongside with the search-and-rescue crews spent long hours looking for survivors in the collapsed structures and pulling them from the wrecks of the buildings. And the death roll has risen to at least 22 people. Many people could not flee the storm as it was moving very fast.

“It hit so fast, a lot of folks didn’t have time to take shelter,” Putnam County Mayor Randy Porter said. “Many of these folks were sleeping.”

And the number of missing people still remains unspecified.

John C. Tune Airport, Nashville International's sister airport in West Nashville, “sustained significant damage due to severe weather," spokeswoman Kym Gerlock said in a statement early Tuesday.

The Airport didn’t report of any injuries there as the people were warned to avoid the airport area during the twister. But several hangers were destroyed and power lines were down.

The tornado damaged the historical church, leaving it with a broken tower and stained glass. Another tornado damaged more than 100 structures along a 2-mile (3.2-kilometer) path of destruction in Putnam County, wiping some homes from their foundations and depositing the wreckage far away, Associated Press reports.

“We are resilient and we’re going to rebuild,” Nashville Mayor John Cooper said.

The governor had a telephone spoke with the President Trump and was promised a federal assistance. Trump also announced of his plan to visit the disaster area on Friday.
