Tuscaloosa, Alabama: Traveling from the Dream Home (where I lived for 14 years) to the Dream Duplex (where I lived for 6 years) takes me across the path of devastation left by the April 27, 2011 EF4 tornado. (From Hargrove Road and 3rd Ave East around the curve onto Hackberry Road.)
Homes were flattened. Churches were torn in half. The trees will take decades to recover.
This video was taken on May 5, 2011, 8 days after the tornado struck. You can already see the recovery efforts beginning.
