NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – The number of deaths from devastating tornadoes in Tennessee has risen to 25.

Gov. Bill Lee announced the increase at a news conference Tuesday afternoon where he was accompanied by Nashville Mayor John Cooper.

Rescuers searched through shattered neighborhoods for bodies Tuesday, less than a day after the tornadoes ripped across the capital city and other parts of the state as families slept.
