A tornado traveled ten-miles through three counties over the weekend. The National Weather Service reports an E-F-1 tornado began in far southeastern Davidson County causing mostly minor tree and roof damage on Hampton Drive before crossing Percy Priest Lake.

More damage was observed in the far northwest portion of Rutherford County before the tornado intensified to EF-1 and moved into southern Wilson County.

The most significant damage was surveyed in Gladeville where dozens of trees were snapped or uprooted and several outbuildings were destroyed.


A few homes sustained roof damage especially in the Stonefield Neighborhood and a church had the steeple and a wall knocked off. The tornado lifted just east of Odum Lane.
