Do You Remember the ‘Forgotten’ Tornado Outbreak of 2011?
Nine years have passed since Alabama's "forgotten" tornado outbreak; do you remember where you were on April 15, 2011?
29 confirmed tornadoes touched down in Alabama that day, causing significant damage to many homes. The event is often referred to as a "forgotten" tornado outbreak, as it would be overshadowed by what came just 12 days later--the generational tornado outbreak of April 27, 2011.
ABC 33/40 Chief Meteorologist James Spann shared his memories of that day on Facebook.
I was working out our Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa studios on Skyland Boulevard and could literally see a tornado just down the road. It was terrifying.
