A tornado struck the region on Friday afternoon, causing damage and fatalities in nearby Murfreesboro but â except for trees â largely sparing the park. All employees are accounted for and okay. Minor damage has been reported to one seasonal employeeâs home, but he is being taken care of. All park structures reportedly escaped damage, but there are large numbers of fallen trees throughout the park â numbering in the hundreds, if not thousands. A comprehensive damage assessment will be undertaken this week.
