Marsha Blackburn Report: Tennessee Strong

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – The fallout from the multiple tornadoes that hit our state left us grieving, surrounded by debris and destruction. When I woke up to the news Tuesday morning, I knew I had to return home. I flew to Nashville and went straight to the Tennessee Emergency Management Agency’s (TEMA) state emergency operations center.

I met TEMA Director Patrick Sheehan, Major General Jeff Holmes and others who walked me through the initial reports and briefed me on what assets were needed on the ground. TEMA was so well prepared, there was not an overwhelming need for food or water.
