Tennessee Tornadoes, Tornadoes, high winds and hail battered the U.S. midsection on Friday, with reports of nearly three dozen tornadoes causing damage across five states and prompting urgent warnings to take cover across the region.
No deaths were reported, but seven people were hurt by suspected tornadoes in northern Alabama. Additional tornado sightings were reported to the National Weather Service in southeastern Tennessee, and along the Ohio River Valley in Illinois, Indiana and Kentucky.
The Weather Service issued a stream of tornado warnings urging residents in the path of the fast-moving storms to take cover and get off roads.
Earlier in the week, tornadoes killed 13 people in Kansas, Missouri, Illinois and Tennessee.
Huntsville, Alabama, which was struck in April 2011 by a series of deadly tornadoes, was hit again on Friday. An emergency management official said seven people were transported to hospitals.
“There are power outages and power poles down,” National Weather Service meteorologist Chris Darden said. “There were two storms that moved across the area, very close together, almost attached to each other.”
The path of the storm near Huntsville was similar to a devastating tornado on April 27, 2011. That month, 364 people were killed by tornadoes in Alabama and Mississippi.
