Please pray for Nashville
As many of you now know, the general Nashville area was hit by a major tornado last night. At least 10 folks dead. 150 injured.

Two very special urban districts — Five Points on our east side and Germantown on the north side — were hit hard.

My father (now 88) grew up in North Nashville. Germantown lost some beautiful historic buildings. Lots of newish multi-level apartment buildings had roofs ripped off. People are homeless. Countless businesses closed. Some businesses will be forever closed. A dear friend who lives near Germantown will be without power for days (if not a week or more).

One of my favorite local churches (in East Nashville) was obliterated.

Nashville had a rough tornado in 1998 and then a 1,000-year flood in 2010. But this is going to be far worse. It truly is bad.

It is times like this when you realize sports (though I love) are not such a big deal.

We are Nashville and we will stay strong. But my city needs your thoughts and prayers.

God bless, everybody.

Sending thoughts and prayers to all effected ... and as of now, there are 19 confirmed dead. Which is horrific.

Hang in there.

A 1 AM local time tornado ... that's not good even in the case of a weak tornado. Much less this one.

I was on a flight from Denver to Charlotte last night. I also have a Meteorology degree - I knew there was a chance of storms over West Tennessee and West Kentucky, and my flight would be going that way. I got the airplane internet to track the storms: we flew over the area at 9 PM Central and not much was going on. Only a minor deviation from the initial route. Some storms, but pretty run-of-the-mill.

I was surprised at can be when I woke up this AM and found out about this. There truly was only ONE supercell. Not one of those systems with supercells everywhere.
But it went crazy in the wrong place at the wrong time.

The structural damage to Nashville is getting all the attention, but most of the casualties and missing people are in Putnam County.

Regardless, it’s a horrible situation.

God Bless Nashville, a wonderful city.

IIRC, that 2010 flood was wicked, but for some reason did not attract a ton of national publicity. I suspect with climate change, Nashville will experience that again in the near future, very sad.

Similar to Rolla, MO tornado in that it wasn't some big line that everyone was expecting a lot of activity from.

Sad thing is one of the meteorologists in Little Rock every so often points out that the area from Little Rock to the AL/GA line from the gulf coast to about the Ohio River doesn't have as many tornados normally as further west but tends to have more deadly tornados because conditions tend to work for nighttime tornados to develop. He hammers constantly to have a weather alert radio turned up where you sleep.

Yes, the TSU campus suffered some damage (but apparently not too bad). Nearby, Tune Airport (a private and corporate use facility) suffered $93M in damages (and that does not include the planes and vehicles owned by private individuals).

Segments of Germantown and East Nashville (two quirky, charming and vibrant mixed-used districts both located near our bustling downtown) are in terrible shape. Will take years to rebuild. Donelson (a suburb that is growing fast) got pounded. More than 20 folks dead in Cookeville (about 70 miles to the east and home to Tennessee Tech University).

Rarely does a major city suffer such catastrophic damage due to a weather strike. But our citizens are rallying. Volunteers are everywhere. The Titans, Preds and Sounds have stepped up. Money, clothes, food, etc. are pouring in. The Great Flood of 2000 prepped us well for this. We are diverse city of 2 million with people from all over the world now living here. We love our city and we will get this done. It's going to be hard but we will be Nashville Strong.

Again, thanks to all of you who have offered prayers and well wishes on the board. It continues to mean a lot to me.

Found out a former co-worker that lives in Germantown had a tree fall on his house. Fortunately repairable damage. He is ok.
