posted by Hannity Staff - 3.03.20

New aerial photographs and video show the total destruction surrounding Nashville, Tennessee after severe weather brought a deadly tornado to the region early Tuesday morning; destroying dozens of buildings and killing at least 22 people.

 

“Tornadoes ripped across Tennessee early Tuesday, shredding at least 40 buildings and killing at least 19 people. One of the twisters caused severe damage across downtown Nashville, destroying the stained glass in a historic church and leaving hundreds of people homeless,” reports the Associated Press.

“Daybreak revealed a landscape littered with blown-down walls and roofs, snapped power lines and huge broken trees, leaving city streets in gridlock. Schools, courts, transit lines, an airport and the state Capitol were closed, and some damaged polling stations had to be moved only hours before Super Tuesday voting began,” adds the AP.

“Last night was a reminder about how fragile life is,” said Nashville Mayor John Cooper.
