Alabama

In April, more than 40 tornadoes tore through Alabama. The deadly storms killed more than 200, destroying buildings and homes along its path. Tuscaloosa was the epicenter of a deadly EF-4 tornado which killed more than 40 people.

On April 27, Tuscaloosa, Alabama was on the minds of many Americans, but most didn't realize the damage statewide, especially in the small town of Hackleburg, population 1,500. In a rural area nearly 100 miles away from Birmingham, Hackleburg remains in the shadow of Tuscaloosa but the damage was just as bad, if not worse. The majority of the town was demolished and 17 residents were killed in the storm.
