A powerful storm traveled through middle Tennessee on Monday night, dropping several tornadoes that caused massive damage in several areas including just east of Nashville. At least 24 people people have been confirmed to have died as a result of the storm.
Carrie Underwood, who lives outside of Nashville, appeared on the Today show on Tuesday morning where she shared an update on her family, revealing that her husband, Mike Fisher had to take their two sons, 5-year-old Isaiah and 1-year-old Jacob, to a "safe room" in the early hours of the morning.
"I'm like texting people I know, and I'm like asking my husband if everybody's good," Underwood told Today hosts Savannah Guthrie and Carson Daly. "He said he had to go upstairs at like 2 a.m. and grab the boys and take them down to a little safe room in our house.
"I was like, 'I bet everybody is crying.' It's 2 a.m., freaking out, so it was scary."
Underwood also discussed the storm on Twitter, sharing a link to ways people could help. "Sending my love to Nashville!" she wrote. "I am praying for all of those affected by the terrible storm."
