(WIAT) — On April 27, 2011, 62 tornadoes swept through Alabama, killing 253 people and destroying many more homes and lives in the process. That day remains one of the worst tornado outbreaks in state history.
Central Alabama was the hardest hit area statewide with cities like Tuscaloosa and Cullman bearing the brunt of the storms. In Hackleburg, roughly 75% of the town was destroyed.
Ten years later, CBS 42 is looking back on that devastating day, talking to the people who lived through it as they look to the future.
