Carrie Underwood found herself in the middle of a tornado earlier this week as severe weather hit the Nashville area.

The Oklahoma native took to Twitter to tell her fans about the damage her home sustained in the storms. High winds, which may have been associated with a tornado, ripped the chimney off her house and threw it into their driveway. Of course, bad weather is a pretty regular occurrence back where she comes from. Her hometown of Muskogee, Okla. is in an area known as Tornado Alley, where twisters frequently form. (Insert your own “Blown Away” jokes here.)

Thankfully, the country singer was safe and sound as the line of storms passed through Wednesday morning (March 1). Hundreds of Middle Tennesseans were affected by the severe weather, which caused 100mph winds and multiple suspected tornadoes south of Nashville.

Although the storms caused power outages, fallen trees and damage to many roofs, there have been no related injuries reported. Now if only we could all learn to keep as cool as Carrie did when a tornado appears nearby.
