NASHVILLE, Tenn. (Mike Osborne)  --  The National Weather Service has confirmed an EF0 tornado touched down in Williamson County during Tuesday evening’s storms.

The small, 70-mile-per-hour twister touched down around 4:30 p.m. southwest of Leipers Fork. It was on the ground for just under 3 miles and was only 25 yards wide.

No major damage or injuries have been reported.

It’s the first September tornado ever recorded in Williamson County.

The Weather Service reported two EF0 tornadoes touched down this past Friday as the remnants of Hurricane Laura pushed through the mid-state. The first was reported in Warren County, the second in Putnam County.
