Music City was hit with devastating storms and tornadoes overnight, resulting in significant damage throughout East Nashville, Germantown, and more.
Its still early and hard to know how we can help our fellow Nashvillians, but as of now, we do know of several shelters and relief centers opening up for those affected by the tornadoes. The Centennial Sportsplex, located at 222 25th Avenue North, was one of the first to open.
For any Wilson County residents, the Mt. Juliet Police department announced via Twitter that there will also be a shelter set up at Victory Baptist Church -- located at 1777 Tate Lane. The police department goes on to say:
Victory Baptist is equipped to assist all, from infants to children to adults to the elderly. There is food, bathroom facilities, entertainment, and sleeping accommodations.
The Lee Chapel AME Church in North Nashville (1200 Dr DB Todd Jr Blvd, Nashville, TN 37208) has also set up a relief center. They are requesting water and emergency supplies.
The Mayor's Office has informed us that Nashvillians can report non-emergency cleanup by calling 311. Additionally, the Navarre Corp. has about 15 wheelchair accessible vehicles in Nashville and are willing to help persons with disabilities find shelter.They can be reached at 229-328-9182.
We will keep you updated with more resources as they become available.
