  Email   Print
 A line of strong thunderstorms moved through Wilson County and Middle Tennessee Tuesday afternoon knocking down this large tree in the yard of Jim Mills and family on Oak Hill Circle in Lebanon. Trees were reported down in other locations including the 13000 block of Lebanon Road in Mt. Juliet and at Horn Springs Road at Coles Ferry Pike. No injuries were reported. A funnel cloud was reported by a trained spotter to the National Weather Service Office in Old Hickory in the Hermitage area about 2:30 p.m. and another near Mt. Juliet around 2:40 p.m. The storm system moved from the western portion of the state through Middle Tennessee with winds in some places at 60-70 mph. Some hail was reported along the storm’s path, also. Locally, patients at University Medical Center were moved from their rooms into the hospital corridors as a precaution, and customers and personnel at Kroger moved to the coolers as the storm moved through. There were no injuries reported.
