UPDATE: Wilson Tornado EF2

The National Weather has determined the tornado that hit Wilson County and damaged eight to ten homes was an EF2 with winds of 120 to 135 MPH.

People were cleaning up Wednesday, pulling things like trucks that were stuck behind sheds, to trying to figure out what happened to the roof of their homes.

Emergency management officials don't have an estimate on the amount of damage but are happy to see so many people lending a helping hand. Rodney Dancy says, "This is a close community so a lot of folks from the community have come out and volunteered their time, services, and equipment.

This is now the second tornado to hit Wilson County in the past several months.
