"In the clear light of day I was shocked," TBA President Sarah Sheppeard writes, that "a vicious series of tornadoes caused significant damage across the state, barreling through downtown Nashville and Wilson, Putnam and Smith counties, among others. These caused inconceivable damage and killed at least 26 people. As a girl originally from Kansas who has had the bad fortune of enduring those trips to the basement for tornadoes, but the good fortune of surviving even the worst ones, I cannot convey to you the emotional impact of tornado damage." Sheppeard writes about the devastation, how bar groups jumped in to offer assistance and the need for lawyers to help. That need continues, and she offers easy ways to get involved.
