From Tennessee Mike in Cookeville / JB Elliott:

we’re getting a report that the Castalian Springs post office is completely destroyed….

A reporter for NewsChannel 5 in Nashville is near where the FIRE is at…he reports the sound is incredible….and it is just a huge rolling ball of fire…apparently, a TORNADO could be the cause of it as he is reporting alot of property damage near the site….trees damaged and uprooted…..

LATER NOTE FROM MIKE: I’m now getting information from our media sources that say a tornado has destroyed a PUMPING STATION in Tennessee just ENE of Nashville. It is a 10-12″ natural gas line and that the gas is running full speed out of the pipes which is causing a HUGE fire…pictures on incredible…some people 90 miles away have seen it….
