CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Fifteen years ago, a powerful F-3 tornado ripped through Clarksville's historic downtown.

The January 22, 1999 tornado destroyed a 5-block area including the city's historic courthouse and tore up buildings at Austin Peay State University.

More than 600 buildings were damaged or destroyed, costing the city more than $72-million.

No one was killed, and there were only a handful of minor injuries.
