Tennessee (WVLT) -- Four tornadoes are now confirmed to have caused damage on the plateau, during Friday's storms.
The National Weather Service spent the weekend assessing damage after the storm rolled across Tennessee.
Two tornadoes hit Rutherford County. The largest killed 2 people and injured 42 others.
Shortly after Noon, a tornado, rated at least an EF3, with a destruction path of more than 23 miles and half a mile wide, started Southwest and ended Northeast of Murfreesboro.
The National Weather Service team found extensive tree damage, and citing the most significant damage was done to a brick home that was completely destroyed and thrown almost completely off its foundation.
Information on the second tornado to hit Rutherford County is still pending from the National Weather Service. 4 homes were damaged along with a barn and several trees were snapped or uprooted. Based on this information the assessment team estimates the winds to be near 100 miles per hour, which could make this EF1 tornado.
Northwest Sumner County was hit by an EF1 Tornado. The path of destruction was 0.6 miles with a width of 50 yards, and winds topped out around 100 miles per hour.
3 frame homes and a mobile home suffered significant roof damage, and numerous trees were uprooted in Sumner.
An EF1 tornado also affected Benton County, centered Northeast of Camden. The path was 4 miles long and 75 yards wide, with winds around 100 miles per hour.
