NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — The tornado count continues to grow from the storms Friday night into Saturday.

In Middle Tennessee, we are now up to 15 tornadoes. That makes 44 for the year, which is the most in a year in Middle Tennessee history. The newest one was an EF-0 in Hermitage. We also confirmed a long track tornado that started in West TN continued into Stewart County and then ended in Todd County, Kentucky. It was on the ground for 123 miles!

The tornado count for the month of December is up to 20 which is more tornadoes than we have ever seen in the month of December since records were kept for Middle TN. From the 1800s to 2020, we only had 17 recorded tornadoes in the month of December in Middle TN.

Other parts of Middle TN got hit with damaging winds. Wind gusts were as high as 78 mph at BNA airport.

In Southern Kentucky, surveys are still ongoing, but there were also several tornadoes confirmed there, including three now in Bowling Green.

The EF3 tornado that leveled the Creekwood Ave neighborhood had winds of 165 mph sustained and there was an EF2 tornado confirmed south of Bowling Green — also in Warren County. Also, an EF-0 tornado was confirmed near the Hadley Community in Warren County. Due to all that damage, schools in Warren County are closed until next year.

The tornado that hit Muhlenberg County and killed 11 people was actually part of a long track tornado that started in Fulton County, KY at 8:56 p.m. and lifted around 11:45 p.m. in Breckinridge County, KY. It had a path length of 163 miles and was upgraded to a high end EF-4 tornado from Fulton County until Muhlenberg County with winds of 190mph. It then weakened to an EF-3 tornado in Ohio County before ending in Breckinridge County. This one is still be surveyed and may have actually started all the way back in Jonesboro, Arkansas, which would make it the longest track tornado in U.S. history.

Of course, this is all still pending as experts continue to survey.
