Deadly storms and at least one tornado tore through Tennessee late last night and into this morning.
Here's where things stand now:
- The victims: At least 22 people died in the storm — 16 in Putnam County, three in Wilson County, two in Davidson County, which includes Nashville, and one in Benton County.
- About the tornado: It wasn't immediately clear how many tornadoes struck the region. Initial surveys indicated EF-3 tornado damage in Nashville's Donelson neighborhood and in Mt. Juliet, 20 miles east of Nashville, the weather service said. The same tornado might have hit both areas, the weather service said.
- The damage: In Nashville, 48 buildings collapsed, Mayor John Cooper said. More damage was reported through the Middle Tennessee region.
- Super Tuesday voting: Polls in Davidson and Wilson counties opened one hour late this morning, but later officials reported every county had polling locations available to voters. Tennessee is one of 14 US states voting in Super Tuesday elections today.
