 April 27, 2013 marks the two-year anniversary of one of the most devastating natural disaster days in the history of Alabama. Three waves of tornados would leave Alabama with a dramatically different landscape, which is still viewed from the back roads and highways of Alabama today.

The EMA estimates that 1.1 billion dollars worth of damage was sustained, however other groups put that total much higher. During that day 62 tornados touched down in thirty-five of Alabama's 67 counties inflicting 248 deaths and 2219 injuries. More than 7000 people became unemployed in less than six minutes. Lives were changed forever!

Take time to learn how to be prepared for a tornado.
