Episode Narrative During the early morning hours on Wednesday, April 27th, twelve tornadoes occurred across Middle Tennessee. Seven of these were EF0 tornadoes and five of these were EF1 tornadoes. Numerous thunderstorm wind damage events, along with several flash flooding events, occurred across the mid state also. This severe weather outbreak was the result of a very unstable airmass across Middle Tennessee ahead of a strong frontal system, with a warm front positioned near the Tennessee/Alabama border. As this frontal system pushed across the area through the remainder of the morning through the early evening hours, several thunderstorm wind and flash flood events also occurred as additional severe thunderstorms developed.
Event Narrative A tractor trailer was pushed over by the wind along State Highway 43. In addition, 8 miles north of Lawrenceburg, a 30-inch tree had been blown down, as well as significant structural damage to a home, with a family trapped inside. Rescuers came to the scene at this time. Specific details concerning if any one received any injuries were unknown.
