Bright & Early: We’re Not In Kansas Anymore, Toto Edition

Good morning, Nashville. In light of the tornadoes that have swept through Nashville and the rest of Middle Tennessee in the last few years, Tennessee is now considered to be part of a new “tornado alley.” Though other states see a lot more tornadoes than we do, we’re actually leading the country in tornado-related fatalities. Many advocates are working to update building codes for mobile homes in the region in an effort to reduce that risk because they believe that most homes in the area aren’t installed correctly or equipped to handle twisters. Here’s hoping this Spring doesn’t bring us too much more in the way of severe weather.
