One woman was killed and two Others were injured when intense storms, including a possible tornado, drove over Rutherford County, according to the National Weather Service in Nashville.
“We will send out several polls today to assess whether a tornado moved in two different areas,” said NWS Meteorologist John Cohen on Tuesday.
So far no further deaths have been reported, Cohen said.
Most storms damage affected parts of the southwest of Middle Tennessee as well as Rutherford County and just east of it.
Overturned homes, downed power lines and lanes were reported in Wayne, Lawrence, Maury, Williamson, Rutherford, Cannon, Coffee and Grundy.
Rutherford The County Fire Rescue Department reported several homes injured at the southern end of the county, possibly due to a tornado touchdown.
According to the Special Operations Department of Rutherford County EMS, a woman died after a possible tornado blew a house outside its grounds on Midland Road In Christiana.
In addition to mortality, two other people were taken to a local hospital early Tuesday morning after injury in Christiana. Their identities were not immediately known.
Investigations of the area are expected to take place at noon, according to Rutherford County Sheriff Office spokesman Lisa Marchesoni.
“(Brandmän) seeks to ensure there is no other injury or death. One is too many, says Marchesoni.

The department also reported that it responded to a structural collapse at 8085 Midland Road, a home was possibly hit by the Tornado on 2250 Rock Springs Midland Road and a structure fire on Barley Road in Christiana.
Public security officials have asked only those who need to be in the affected area. Roads closed include Rock Springs Midland and Midland Fosterville Road, which was closed Tuesday morning.
Representatives from Rutherford County Sheriff Office, Rutherford County Fire Rescue Department and Rutherford County Emergency Services were in place, as well as Tennessee Highway Patrol.
Christiana Storm Damage
RCEMS crews arrived early Tuesday morning to find a house collapsed in the Midland area of Christiana and a caravan had been reversed by the winds.
Two women in that trailer suffered injuries, said RCEMS spokesman Patrick Miller. One of the women has internal injuries and is in the trauma center at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center. The other woman is treated for minor injuries at Saint Thomas Rutherford Hospital.
When responding to the house where mortality was reported, RCSO’s informant, Lisa Marchesoni, said the deputies were shocked by the damage.
“Cut everything to pieces,” said Marchesoni.
A third home was injured but Miller said the man inside the home refused medical treatment.
Around 12:30, RCFRD staff found a two-story house break, with smoke and flames pouring from the wind, said the spokeswoman Lisa Sloan.
An adult man and three children could escape unscathed from the house, which is still being evaluated by firefighters. The cause of the fire is thought to be a lightning strike, but the investigation is under way.
“Smoke alarm saved that family. They can wake you up and save your life,” Sloan said.
Almost 15.00 housing in the whole area is without power, said Marchesoni. Middle Tennessee Electric is on the ground and tries to restore power.
Holders heard possible tornado-head
Ashley Herman lay awake in bed when she heard the second warning that Rutherford County was under a tornado warning.
Then her power went out, as she had expected.
“I thought it was good, but then the wind was getting. I ran into my room, grabbed both my girls and ran into my father’s wardrobe,” she said. Herman’s daughters are 2 and 3 years old.
Fortunately, her family was undamaged and the house released major damage, although several trees and the girl’s playhouse outside were fought, she said.
“That sound is something I’ll never forget, just a low depth WOOOOOOOOOH,” said Herman in a message. “It did not last for just a minute or so. I just shook thinking about how much worse it could have been.”

Authorities Asking Residents to Stay At Home
“I suggest that day trips for residents stay at home,” said Miller.
The streets are littered with rubbish that the crew cleans.
Miller said residents could be tempted to look for property damage but said they should wait to make cleaning and rescue process faster.
Most roads are currently closed but expected to be open later Tuesday, Sloan said. Roads from Rock Springs to Midland Fosterville Road are closed.
NWS reported that some showers on the plateau are expected to move out of Middle Tennessee Tuesday followed by clear sunny clouds and temperatures during the over 60’s.
