NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) — Gusty winds blew a church steeple from its base at a South Nashville church as powerful storms moved through Middle Tennessee Wednesday night.
The steeple fell from the Tusculum Church of Christ on Nolensville Pike. No one was outside at the time and steeple did not hit or damage any parked cars.

Minister Mark Adams told News 2 the church was holding Bible and English classes when they heard the wind blow open the doors.
Adams said ministers took the children to shelter in a safer part of the building and someone came running in to tell them the steeple had fallen off.
“We have some people here who work on building and grounds. So I’m sure they’ll be making contact with folks about either getting it from repaired or replaced, Whatever we have to do. But fortunately, it’s just the steeple and not something much worse,” added Adams.
Thousands of people are still without power Thursday morning after the storms moved through Middle Tennessee.
The storms downed trees and power lines across the area, leaving behind damage across Middle Tennessee and Southern Kentucky.
