    Thanks Chris and all mets looking after us on this rough evening. And as others already mentioned, this being eight years after the March 2 2012 tornadoes.

    My family and I have all our alert radios/iphones ready in case a warning happens at something like 3am while asleep. Good to have redundancy in getting warnings.

      Glad that you are prepared, can’t believe it’s been 8 years since that outbreak. Stay safe 🙂

      I sure hope you are safe! I mean, that is extremely eerie that you typed this post, and then later right before 3AM, there is a tornado in north Nashville. Please update your status later!
