Cox Automotive's Manheim Nashville auction location will remain closed as it assesses damage caused by severe weather Tuesday.
The company said on Friday there's no set time for reopening yet and it's asking clients to avoid the site until further notice. Several buildings on the property have been severely damaged, the company said.
All 619 of its Manheim Nashville team members have been accounted for after severe weather devastated parts of the surrounding area. No one was injured at the site.
Social media users had been posting photos apparently of the property, showing debris strewn around and at least one van partially overturned. Manheim commented on one of the photos: "Thanks for your concern. We are just happy that no one got hurt. We can replace cars. We can't replace people."
Tornadoes and severe weather ripped through parts of Tennessee early Tuesday morning, killing at least 22 people and damaging some 140 buildings, the Associated Press reported. Local authorities were still sifting through damage on Tuesday afternoon.
Manheim Nashville is located in Mount Juliet, Tenn., a Nashville suburb where drone footage by a local news outlet showed homes torn apart after storms and tornadoes blew through the area.
