NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A seventh person in Tennessee has died from injuries she suffered during a string of powerful storms earlier this month that whipped up destructive tornadoes. Police say 78-year-old Penny Scroggins from Clarksville died Saturday after she was injured on Dec. 9 by the tornado that ripped through the city. Three others died from the tornado, including a 10-year-old. Another three people died after a different tornado tore through the Madison section of Nashville later that day. Scroggins was remembered as a wonderful mother and grandmother who was kind-hearted and never met a stranger. She was born in Muncie, Indiana.
