Centertown, Tenn. - Storms in Tennessee and Kentucky damaged homes and injured at least four people.

Storms damaged communities along on U.S. 70 between Centertown and McMinnville in Warren County.

A lot of damage occurred on U.S. 70 between Centertown and McMinnville in Warren County.

"I just seconds away when this came through. It blew my car all over the road," said a storm victim.

"Winds came along, just hearing it it got real calm just before it did this and right after that we looked out and seen this," said Donnie Hollandsworth, a storm victim, referring to a large uprooted tree toppled across his yard and other damages.

Several people lost their homes in McMinnville. Evidence of the severe weather was seen in many neighborhoods. Insulation was strewn in trees and piles of wood lay everywhere. Several damaged homes sat on Beacon Drive.

"It really hits home what this stuff can do. It will hit one house, but then the next one's okay," said Lane Foster.

Warren County Sheriff's Office received reports of downed power lines, several dozen damaged homes, but no injuries or deaths. Several residents reported seeing a tornado pass through the county.

Centertown is more than 60 miles southeast of Nashville.
