Residents and storm chasers posted videos of the tornado on X, platform formerly known as Twitter. “Intensity guidance of the Columbia, TN tornado that just occurred. It suggests roughly mid-range EF4 intensity, with the range possibly somewhere in between 175-195 mph (pending NWS surveys). This is an estimation, not an official rating,” one person said.

The NWS had declared a tornado emergency in the area after a massive twister was seen heading towards Spring Hill, Chapel Hill and Eagleville.
