RUTHERFORD, TN (News First) – Damage reports are starting to come in along the path of the confirmed tornado that struck Northwest Tennessee and portions of Western Kentucky, Saturday, including Fort Campbell and Clarksville, where damage is apparently extensive enough that emergency services in Bowling Green, Ky are on standby to respond to the damaged area.

Reports of the Rutherford Fire Department Building (pictured above), and unconfirmed reports of injuries are beginning to become known. Several houses appear to be hit on Summers Road in Dresden. Personnel are trying to get their way to that area. According to The Weakly Times, multiple homes and businesses are damaged, and emergency responders are having a difficult time trying to get to injured individuals due to storm damage.
