Reports from Emergency Management officials and the AP are that 2 people are dead (a female in her mid-20s and her 9-week-old daughter), 35 were injured, and over 3 dozen homes were destroyed from an apparent tornado that struck Murfreesboro during the lunch hour on April 10. Below are two amateur videos as the storm moved through the Walter Hill area of Murfreesboro. Click here for the story from Daily News Journal out of Rutherford County and here or here or here for photos from the area. All photos courtesy DNJ.com. Storm reports are scattered across the entire mid-state as a line of supercell storms moved across the region during the late morning through mid-afternoon hours.

NWS officials from Nashville will do a storm survey today (Saturday) to determine the magnitude of this event. I'll post their findings once they are published.
