Nashville Area Tornado 03/03/2020 Update
We were heartbroken to hear about the devastating EF-3 tornado that caused destruction and at least 24 deaths in the greater Nashville, Tennessee area the night of March 2nd-3rd. We have been in touch with the United Way of Greater Nashville and the United Way of Wilson County and the Upper Cumberland to check on staff and offer UWW’s support. So far, all United Way staff are safe but there is significant damage to many of their homes and… neighborhoods.
211 is overseen by the United Way of Greater Nashville for this area but calls are handled by Heart of Florida United Way in Orlando, FL. At this time, they are not requesting any additional support from the network, but we have offered to assist if needed. Thank you to all those 211s who have expressed willingness to help if needed– we will let you know as the situation evolves.
