EF0 tornado hits Gallatin golf community

Posted: Updated:
GALLATIN, Tenn. -

The National Weather Service has confirmed an EF0 tornado hit Gallatin Wednesday morning, ripping roofs off homes and destroying a century-old brick horse barn.

Hardest hit was Fairvue Plantation, a golf course community south of the city.

Resident Dan Taylor was awakened by his security alarm.

"Like I've heard people say a thousand times, it sounded like I was under an overpass and a train was going above me," Taylor recalled.

Dozens of trees were uprooted or snapped in two.

Timothy Brown told Nashville's News 2 he heard a roar.

"It was a hard enough roar and shaking of the house that I bolted into the back bedroom in a closet with the rest of the family," he said, adding, "It was a ferocious wind.  It came through very hard and strong, it was the strongest wind I've seen in this neighborhood that I can remember."

At the entrance to Fairvue are brick buildings that line the golf course.  The buildings were built in the late 1800s and used as barns for horses to give birth.  One of the mare barns was destroyed.

There were no immediate reports of injuries in Sumner County.

Elsewhere around the Mid-State tornadoes have been confirmed in Mt. Juliet and south of White Bluff in southeast Dickson County and in Kingston Springs in southern Cheatham County.

A 47-year-old man was killed by the storms in Nashville.
