KY native in Nashville relives tornado
LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – There’s at least two reported tornadoes that touched down early Tuesday morning in Nashville.
At least 22 people were killed by the storm that struck while many people were sleeping.
Shannon Cosby is a Lexington native who lives in Nashville and was there during the storm.
“I am OK, I’m fine, everybody around me is fine,” said Shannon Cosby.
Cosby says around 1:30 a.m. she was watching the storm on radar and it looked like her neighborhood was about to take a direct hit.
She was getting warnings from the news and her phone to take cover and she was prepared to do that.
Cosby says she remembers hearing sirens and the wind howling.
Once the storm was over, she realized it missed her.
“It was like I was in the bubble that nothing happened which I thank God for,” said Cosby.
Cosby says the storm hit everywhere around her expect for the spot she was in. There were trees down and the power was out two blocks away from her.
“It’s definitely a miracle,” said Cosby.
Cosby says local response teams are telling the public to stay home while they clean up the damage.
Her boss told all the employees to stay home and off the roads.
“It looks like a war zone,” said Cosby.
Cosby says the all the damage looks like a war zone, but she believes she’ll be returning to work on Wednesday.
