dark and stormy night

Tornadoes in Tennessee tonight. Two are dead and two dorms at Union University collapsed. Eight students are still trapped in those destroyed dorms, but are apparently okay.

The storm forced some polls to close early in Shelby County.

Reported tornado in downtown Nashville, headed to Goodlettesville around 9:45pm.

Be safe, Tennessee friends and family.

Arkansas and Kentucky also got hit pretty badly. Arkansas had 11 reported deaths so far, including a mother, father, and 11-year-old in Atkins -- Atkins is just 30 miles from Conway where Cinda and I grew up and where our parents live.

Mrs. E and my best friends live in Jackson. She teaches English at Union. They're okay, but he told me this morning that the place is a mess.
