Tornado Outbreak Remembered, 1 Year Later
It’s been one year since one of the deadliest weather days in U.S. history, when a storm system spawned hundreds of tornadoes, tearing up large towns.
FOX News Radio’s Jeff Monosso reports:
(Eyewitnesses) “I see people dead.//I’ve never seen nothing like that in my life, never.”
It was a three-day outbreak of hundreds of tornadoes that badly damaged six states from Mississippi to Virginia, killing 322 people – 235 deaths in Alabama alone.
(Maddox) “It was a day of destruction and devastation.”
April 27th, when Tuscaloosa Mayor Walter Maddox says over 5,000 properties were destroyed or damaged there. But one year later, over 40% of those homes and 93% of the businesses that were destroyed are being rebuilt.
(Maddox) “It’s that kind of resilient spirit that’s kept our comeback strong and alive today.”
Thousands will attend ceremonies across the state, remembering those who died and honoring heroes that saved many lives last year.
