“There were businesses in the street that also had shrapnel, had busted windows,” Kerry Walters, an employee with Nashville Rubber Gasket, told WSMV. “It is very concerning that surfaces may not be inspected and the manner in which they should be for takeoff.”

Walters claims of her car, and the cars of a few colleagues were dinged by the rubble, saying, “looks almost like hail.”
