Per Nicole Chavez, Jason Hanna and Chuck Johnston of CNN.com, 24 people were killed Tuesday when at least one tornado and severe thunderstorms hit central Tennessee. 

Nashville mayor John Cooper added 48 buildings collapsed and around 150 people were taken to hospitals as a result of the storms.

In addition to the members of the Titans donating supplies, the Titans Foundation announced a $1 million donation to aid in the recovery effort. 

Nissan Stadium, home of the Titans, is located in Nashville and is being considered for tornado relief efforts after having its power restored on Tuesday.
