Tornadoes have torn through several states this week ... killing more than 120 in Joplin, Missouri and more than a dozen others in Oklahoma, Kansas, Arkansas and Texas.

There were a few tornado scares in Minnesota and Illinois, as well as, Tennessee where Taylor Swift was shooting her latest music video for 'The Story of Us.'

The video premiered Wednesday on MTV where the Channel 957 artist said quote, "It was like two a.m., and we had to hide.  All of us -- all the extras, my band and I -- we had to hide in a room where there were no windows until the storm warnings passed.  So that was  little bit crazy."
Thankfully, Nashville was not devastated like so many other cities that are trying to clean-up and rebuild.
