April 27th: Two Year Anniversary of Deadly Tornado Outbreak

By  | 

April 27th marks the two-year anniversary of one of Alabama's most deadly natural disasters in history.

Forecasters had been warning of a potentially dangerous outbreak for days and their prediction indeed came true.

Sixty-two tornadoes tore through the state on April 27th, 2011.

There were two waves of storms, one early in the morning, and a second wave of strong tornadoes that struck that afternoon and evening.

252 people were killed and nearly 2000 were injured.

Some rebuilding is still taking place in parts of Jefferson and Tuscaloosa counties.
