A Class Of Its Own

Severe weather closes Manheim Nashville auction site

Cox Automotive’s Manheim Nashville auction place will keep on being closed as it assesses harm triggered by critical weather Tuesday. In the meantime, the company is inquiring clients to steer clear of the site.

It was not clear how extensive the place will be closed.

Social media users had been submitting photographs apparently of the house, displaying particles strewn about and at least a single van partly overturned. Manheim commented on a single of the photographs: “Thanks for your issue. We are just satisfied that no a single obtained damage. We can exchange cars and trucks. We are not able to exchange people.”

Matt Trapp, Manheim’s east regional vice president, explained in an email that no a single was hurt at the site. The auction’s human means staff is performing to account for the safety of staff members who dwell in the area, he explained.

Tornadoes and critical weather ripped by way of components of Tennessee early Tuesday early morning, killing at least 22 people and harming some 140 buildings, the Linked Press noted. Local authorities had been still sifting by way of harm on Tuesday afternoon.

Manheim Nashville is situated in Mount Juliet, Tenn., a Nashville suburb where by drone footage by a regional news outlet confirmed houses torn apart following storms and tornadoes blew by way of the area.
