NASHVILLE, Tenn. – President Trump plans to visit Tennessee this week after a state of emergency was declared following the deadly tornadoes.
Tennessee residents spent the day Tuesday taking inventory of how there lives had changed. Just hours earlier, shortly after midnight, an ambush of destruction forced them to take cover – sheltering from an EF-3 Tornado.
CBN is on the ground in the area, talking to survivors who are working to recover after these deadly storms.
Local resident Taylor Nelson and her husband took cover from the storm just in time.
“You need to come look at the sky – it was bright lime green, I’ve never seen, I mean it was lime green,” she recalled.
“We were running into our kitchen to go down to our basement steps as we were running down our basement steps, my ears started popping and our roof took off,” Nelson added.
Just down the street in the same neighborhood, Chris Folsom shared a similar experience.
“The sound, you know that they describe, the train, the roaring and it’s coming hard and fast,” Folsom explained. “I ran downstairs into the basement. As soon as I got in the door, the roof ripped off.”
The long-track tornado skipped through parts of Nashville where at least 45 buildings suffered severe damage.
