Pleasant Grove, Alabama
April 28, 2011
This was by far the worst destruction I saw from the April 27th tornado. There was natural gas spewing from the ground everywhere. I saw a body. The house you see behind the Buick was totally destroyed, except for what was kept inside their inner closet. The National Guard shut down the neighborhood at 7:00 after reports of looting.
The beauty out of this was neighbors helping neighbors, strangers becoming friends, and ordinary people becoming heroes.
