25 dead after devastating storms

At least 25 people were killed, several others injured as severe storms and tornadoes hit Nashville and central Tennessee early Tuesday, officials said.

storms hit in the early hours of Tuesday morning, blowing down walls and roofs, snapping power lines and bring down trees.

“Last night was a reminder about how fragile life is,” Nashville Mayor John Cooper said at a Tuesday morning news conference.

Schools, courts and transit lines were closed, and some damaged polling stations were moved only hours before Super Tuesday primary voting was set to begin.
