Readyville, Tennessee was left in devastation after a tornado ripped through the town Saturday around 2 A.M

With winds up to 130 miles per hour, a large portion of their community was destroyed.

"30 homes were damaged, 10 being completely totaled, thankfully and miraculously there were no fatalities," said Rutherford County Public Information Officer, Lisa Kaye.

With destruction throughout the town, The Readyville Mill was also hit by the tornado stripping the structure down to its original frame.

The Mill was built in 1812 and brought homestyle cooking to people all across Middle Tennessee, "thankfully the tornado hit when there was no patrons inside," said Lisa Kaye
