The superstar is in New York making media rounds in support of her new book, fitness and lifestyle book, FIND YOUR PATH: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life, which hits shelves today.

During a Tuesday morning (March 3) appearance on NBC’s TODAY Show, Underwood revealed that her husband, Mike Fisher, and their two sons, Isaiah and Jacob, took cover as the storm approached.

“He said he had to go upstairs at like 2 am and grab the boys and take them down to, we have like a little safe room in our house,” she explained. “I bet everybody was crying. It’s 2 am and like, freaking out.”

Thankfully, Underwood said her family and friends are safe, however, some were not so lucky. At least seven people in Middle Tennessee have been confirmed dead following the devastating storms.

A shelter for those in need has been established at the Nashville Farmers Market located at 900 Rosa L. Parks Blvd. Those interested in helping the Nashville community can donate to The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee’s Middle Tennessee Emergency Response Fund HERE
