April 2011 Tornado Super Outbreak –  A Look Back

Resident struggles to restore resting placeWednesday marks the fifth anniversary of the April 27th outbreak. While the storms lasted several days and crossed over 26 states, Alabama was hit the hardest that Wednesday. Sixty-two tornadoes tracked across Alabama over an 18 hour period, cutting a damage path greater than 1200 miles. 253 Alabamian lives were lost, making this an unforgettable yet indescribable day.

2011 was an unusually active and deadly year for tornadoes across the U.S., with a total of 1,691 tornadoes reported across the country, more than any other year on record except for 2004, which saw 1,817 tornadoes. Several tornado records were broken in 2011, including for greatest number of tornadoes in a single month (758 in April) and the greatest daily total (200, on April 27), according to NOAA.

Images From the Ground

Approximately 50 soldiers from the U.S Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center and School at Fort Bragg volunteered to assist in the clean-up of a Fayetteville neighborhood, April 21, that had been damaged by tornadoes in the area. More than 60 tornadoes touched down across the state of North Carolina, April 16, damaging more than 400 homes and destroying more than 60. The group of soldiers spent the morning sorting through the debris and placing it in piles for pick-up by the city. The group was mainly comprised of recent Special Forces Qualification Course graduates awaiting assignment to their following unit. Residents provided yard equipment and once the debris was sorted, the soldiers began working on the landscape. Many homes in the relatively new subdivision were reduced to rubble. The normally well-manicured lawns looked like they were strewn with toothpicks, as splintered wood and roofing shingles lay spread across the grass. Many of the soldiers conducting the clean-up had prior experience with natural disaster recovery, such as Sgt. Luis Gutierrez, a recent SFQC graduate who was sent to assist in the clean-up in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina in 2005. "It just gives you a good feeling to be able to help out in a time of need."

Spc. Robert Boettner, 31st Chemical Brigade, Northport, Ala., carries a child’s bike from the rubble in the Crescent Ridge area in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Many families lost everything during the tornado and little discoveries like this bike that still works helps them to hold on to hope.
