Tornado Destruction

In December 2021, a deadly tornado ripped through Obion County and devastated many homes, businesses, and families in its path. Sadly, our county also experienced a loss of life. Our Chamber of Commerce is honored to have participated in the tornado relief efforts that took place throughout our county and helped mend some of the brokenness left behind.
