Looks like we have some heavy rain heading up into the area from Mississippi now. And looks like some cells are popping over Arkansas too, not looking severe but tonight is relentless..

I still haven't had my fun yet either  :-\

it's 1:40 here, 70/62 degrees (it dropped 2 degrees since 5pm...wow. dewpt stayed the same) and winds S 18 G 25 MPH

our cap broke about 45 minutes or so ago (i was mistaken earlier).  now we have storms firing, and the line is encroaching. 

yay.

TS, any more reports on the downed plane?

Haven't seen anything on that yet.


A big crash of thunder from the Williamson County cell just shook me awake.  :o

Franklin, take cover.

I live within 1/2 mile of the Wilson/Trousdale county line where they initially suspected that plane had gone down. The fire looked like a plane crash, but it turned out to be the Columbia Gulf gas main located 10 miles north-northeast of me. I'm pretty sure there was no plane crash. I think whoever called it in mistook the gas main break for a plane crash.
 It sure reminded me of a plane crash when I saw the flames lighting up the sky.
 


Thanks.

Macon County Sheriff Gammons confirming on WKRN at least 1 fatality outside Lafayette. Says there will probably be more. 25 - 30 brick homes leveled or half-leveled off 52W west of Lafayette. That Macon County /Trousdale County storm is probably going to prove to be a bad one.

Just came up from the basement. WKRN had the rotation headed directly over my house. Fortunately, it headed more NNE. Everyone is tucked back in bed. Hope they get to stay there.

Servo, sorry, your time has come.

I mean, it did cause a 400 foot tall fire. Never heard of a storm doing that before. Sounds like a B movie plot line.

Things are finally calming down from this nightmare of an outbreak...

Now, it's time for our friends and neighbors to begin picking up the pieces.

Ten mins ago saw funnel dipping from sky. Priest Lake Stewarts Ferry. Followed by large wall cloud. Definately something right when the Warning was for Donelson, Airport. Very small. Winds increased to maybe 30-35 mph.

Would you guys believe I passed out just before my Severe T-storm and Tornado Warning was issued?  Exhausted, to say the least.  So I give thanks to God for His protection.  I pray that the death toll goes no higher (currently 31). 

Today will be an "awe-filled" day, I believe.
