Bright & Early: Monday, Monday Edition

Good morning, Nashville. More details continue to surface about the tornados that touched down in Murfreesboro on Friday. The EF-3 twister carried sustained winds of up to 165 mph, killed 2, injured 47, destroyed 94 homes and businesses, and damaged more than 400. New mother Kori Bryant and her 9-week old daughter were killed when the tornado plowed through their home, also leaving husband and father John Bryant with a punctured lung and broken back. As of this morning, John is still recovering in the hospital. The folks over at NashMash have joined friends and family to create a fund at Bank of America that will help carry the cost of the funerals, damage, and medical expenses for the Bryants. If you’d like to contribute, you can do so at any Bank of America, or online via PayPal.
