Severe Weather Knocks Out Power, Downs Trees

Severe weather passed through Middle Tennessee overnight, downing trees and knocking out power to thousands of homes.

Sirens sounded in Nashville, as Davidson County was placed under a tornado warning around 1am.

NES says about 1700 homes are without power, mostly in Pegram, Bellevue, and Crieve Hall.

Storms spotters in Dickson County reported seeing a funnel cloud, although there’s been no confirmation of a tornado on the ground.

The storms were part of a string of severe weather that stretched from Alabama to Illinois.
