Storm Damage: East Nashville Takes One on the Jaw

Neighbors try to clear a tree off a roof on Sharpe Avenue near 14th Street in East Nashville.

Last night's storm may not have been a tornado, but it packed some ridiculously strong winds and crazy hail. My dogs and I ran downstairs, and we were genuinely scared for a good 30 minutes as hail pounded the windows, lightning flashed seemingly every half-second, and the sound of ripping tree limbs and sirens echoed through the streets. It seems the storm was fairly localized, hitting certain pockets but sparing most of the city. But my neighborhood in East Nashville, near Douglas and Gallatin, was a mess. I lost part of a fence when the neighbor's tree uprooted. Not too bad, all things considered. And after witnessing recent events in Alabama and Joplin, Mo., we're relatively lucky.

A whole bunch more photos, after the jump....

That pile of lumber was formerly my backyard fence.

Note the transformer dangling from the telephone pole ... thus the crime scene tape
