Major tornado passed thru Dickson, Cheatham, Davidson, and Wilson Counties from 12:30 AM to 1:30 AM.  Significant damage via winds of 150 mph, hail up to baseball size, and flash flooding. Neighborhoods like Bordeaux, North Nashville, Buena Visa, Germantown, Cleveland Park, 5 Points, Donelson, Hermitage, and Mt.

Looks as if the 5 Points area was hit very hard. Remember we have a number of posters on the forum that live in this area. 

Germantown Vista was hit, Burger Up looks to be gone. Severe damage along Mc Ferrin and Main.

The roof of the Farmers Market was hit but it is serving as a shelter.

We will know a lot more with daylight.

This is terrible, praying for everyone affected. If any city knows how to band together to take care of their own, it's Nashville.

Prayers to everyone. What a scary storm. I woke up around midnight to the sirens and then stayed up for about 3 hours monitoring.

Looking at pictures and man Germantown and Five Points got rocked. One of the large apartment buildings in Germantown looks really bad. 

Germantown Vista and the one on the corner of Jefferson and 3rd were hit pretty hard.

Just saw a map of the three tornados that have hit Nashville from the 20's, 90s, and now this one and they all intersect in Five Points. I am still trying to find the image that was on channel 5 from the NWS.

 

If anyone finds it please post.

Lots of damage at John C Tune Airport as well.

I've heard that Putnam County was also hit very hard. Anyone heard from our friends there? @jmtunafish

TV weather channel says they think it was EF3!!

All good in Berry Hill. 

I've seen these before-and-after images from Five Points floating around Twitter and I can't find the original source, but given the severity of the situation I'll go ahead and share them sans credit:
