It’s been a little over a day since the deadly tornado touched down in Nashville, Tennessee and while residents are already working on rebuilding, the photos and videos we have been seeing of the aftermath are truly heartbreaking.

According to WBIR, 24 people have died and the number of people missing is at 22, which has been lowered from 90 people who were reported missing early Tuesday night (March 3).

WZTV FOX 17 News Nashville has been flying their drone around town to see the wreckage and what they’ve found is eye-opening. They flew over the Donelson Christian Academy, where it looked like hardly any structures were left standing.
