2011 VIDEO: SOUTHERN TORNADOES, SECOND DEADLIEST IN U.S. HISTORY

30 Apr

News reports suggest the recent tornadoes in Southern states, have now caused the deaths toll to rise to 340 victims.  This makes it the second-deadliest tornado outbreak in U.S. history. Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Virginia, Kentucky and Georgia were completely devastated by the destruction within a 24-hour period.

There are so many news reports of tragic stories, in areas with small communities.  The very tiny town of Hacklenburg, Alabama was hit hard with over 29 deaths and many more missing.  Most of their businesses were completely demolished, including a grocery store, pharmacy, three schools, a doctor’s office, the police station, gas station, and the Wrangler plant which employed 5000 people.

To see the wrath of the tornado is amazing, it looks like the aftermath of a war.  It is tragic and at first glance, is hard to see how they will ever rebuild.  But let’s hope they pull together to put their town and lives back together.  It is a sad thing to watch.

Many organizations have set up ways to donate, so hopefully a lot of support will be given to help during this unbelievable act of nature.

Incredible video above was posted on YouTube, and shows images of the complete devastation.
