Posted: Updated:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Damage was reported across the mid-state following the deadly Halloween night storms.

Metropolitan Nashville Police said 9-year-old Christopher Ellison was electrocuted by a live downed power line in the 500 block of Charles E. Davis Boulevard around 9:30 p.m. He was with a friend at the time, but it was unclear if they had been trick-or-treating.

In Nashville, a tree fell on a home on Haverford Drive just before 10 p.m. Thursday. Celestia O'Donnell said she was watching TV in her back room when she heard the wind pick up and her ears started popping.

She went to her safe place, and then heard a large boom. O'Donnell went back and found the tree had fallen into the back room where she had been watching TV.

Power lines beside the home were pulled down by the tree. A vehicle she had recently purchased also suffered damage.

In the Green Hills area, a tree crashed into a Prius. Fortunately no one was inside, but the back window of the car suffered damaged.

In Crieve Hall, two homes were damaged by fire believed to have been caused by strong winds. No one was hurt.

The Omni Hotel in downtown Nashville may have suffered some damage after broken window glass was found on the ground outside the hotel on 5th Avenue South.

In Robertson County, a utility pole was split in half and struck a car at Car Finders at the intersection of Highway 41 and Greer Road in Ridgetop.

At the height of the storms around 8:45 p.m. Thursday, Nashville Electric Service reported as many as 14,000 without power around Davidson County. By 8:30 a.m. Friday, about 1,200 customers were without power.
