Amidst the heat of Coronavirus outbreak and efforts being made to contain it, two (2) tornadoes rips through Nashville early hours of Tuesday, killing at least 19 people, destroying homes and businesses, and leaving more than 50,000 residents without power.
“A tornado skipped across the county,” Nashville Mayor John Cooper told the Tennessean. “You do have people at the hospital and frankly there have been fatalities.”
Metro Nashville police reported police officers and fire crew responded to about 40 building collapses around downtown Nashville, including the areas of Mt. Juliet, Germantown, and Hermitage.
My heartfelt condolences to the families who lost some loved ones to this Tornado and i pray for quick recovery for the casualties. It’s quiet unfortunate that Nashville one of the cities that suffer natural disaster and in all she bounces back. this one won’t be an exemption.
Below are some reactions from Twitter users who were directly or indirectly affected by this Tornado;

I was here for 1998 East Nashville tornado. Nashville came back.
I was here for the historic 2010 flood. Nashville came back.
And now I’m here for the March 3rd, 2020 tornado.
Nashville will come back from this too. #comeback #codered
Several images on social media showed extensive damage to the legendary Basement East bar, home to the famed “I Believe in Nashville” mural which still stands after the destruction.

At a legendary music venue in East Nashville, the building was nearly destroyed, but the iconic “I believe in Nashville” mural remains. It’s a sign of hope and redemption that made it through a night of terror. #NashvilleTornado
During an appearance on “Today”, Carrie Underwood reacted to the storm by revealing that her husband Mike Fisher had to “go upstairs at 2 a.m. and take the boys down to a safe room in our house. I bet everybody was crying.”
Country singer Ryan Hurd took to Twitter to announce he and his pregnant wife Maren Morris are safe but their neighbourhood is in ruins.
Ryan Hurd @RyanHurd
We are ok. I’m in New York and Maren and our house are fine, but our neighborhood is not. Places we have loved for many years don’t look like they are there any more. We are so thankful and devastated at the same time.

The iconic “I Believe In Nashville” murals started popping up after the big flood ten years ago. It’s stood as a symbol of resilience and togetherness. We are heartbroken for our community after last nights tragic tornado, but know that together we will rise up and rebuild again!

Me and my fam are safe but many friends aren’t so lucky. We did live right in one of the worst hit spots a matter of months ago. It’s so crazy. I’m so nervous to find out who the fatalities are.
