The Nashville Predators held a moent of silence for tornado victims before their game against the Dallas Stars on Thursday.

Middle Tennessee saw devastating storms rip through the state on Tuesday, killing 24 people, injuring another 150 and leaving countless people without their homes.

The Predators asked fans in attendance at Bridgestone Arena for a moment of silence to honor the 24 lives lost and asked for a show of love and support for survivors of the natural disaster.

The tornado also hit hard in Putnam County and destroyed a 50 mile stretch through Davidson, Wilson and Smith counties. Winds reached up to 165 miles per hour.

To raise money for the relief effort, the Predators sold "Nashville Strong" T-shirts and merchandise, which will be available on the team's website.

Additionally, a portion of the proceeds from the Predators Foundation silent auction will be donated to the relief effort. Buttons will be on sale for $1 at every Bridgestone Arena event, not just Predators games, at any concession stand beginning next week.

Many of the team's upcoming events will also be focused on benefitting tornado relief.
