UPDATE - Tuesday, 6:00am: The National Weather Service is postponing damage assessment of a tornado near Union City last night.

A tornado was reported in north Obion County yesterday around 5:15 pm just behind the Goodyear Tire Plant off the Highway 51 bypass. 6 to 8 homes are reported to be destroyed. The storm also caused outages to about 1,100 Gibson Electric Membership Corporation members’ homes and businesses in and around Union City. Several poles are broken and wires are down. Gibson EMC’s crews are working to restore power, but the Corp says repairs will be time intensive and Members on life-support equipment may need to make alternate arrangements. Gibson EMC is a member-controlled cooperative serving 35,000 members in Northwest Tennessee.
