Back in the United States, powerful tornadoes ripped through Tennessee early Tuesday morning, killing at least 24 people in the Nashville area. Governor William Lee toured the devastation.
Gov. William Lee: “I spent the day touring and visiting with victims and walking through neighborhoods, and the devastation is heartbreaking. It’s heartbreaking. It’s incredible. Our prayers are greatly needed for families out there who are dealing with a sudden tragic event that has occurred in our state.”
The deadly storms came as voters prepared to take to the polls for the state’s primary. Over a dozen polling stations were damaged before voting began.
