A powerful storm moved through Middle Tennessee early Tuesday morning, spawning a tornado that ripped through parts of Nashville shortly before 1 a.m.
At least 22 people have died in four counties, a grim toll that grew sharply with the announcement just after 9 a.m. that 14 people perished Putnam County — a figure revised upward again to 16 by Putnam County Mayor Randy Porter at an 11 a.m. press conference. At least 65 people have been injured there. The Tennessee Emergency Management Agency says two people have died in Davidson County, three in Wilson and one in Benton.
Wilson County Emergency Management Agency Director Joey Cooper said one of the victims there died in a medical episode.

The Good News
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.
THE GOOD NEWS
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.
- God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
- The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
- But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-4; 2cor 5:21
All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.
'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '
