A Day of Remembrance

Friday, April 28, 2017

 


A day of remembrance in Alabama as we mark the sixth anniversary of the deadliest tornado outbreak in state history. Thanks for joining us. I’m Carl Brady. Governor Kay Ivey ordered flags across the state lowered to half-staff in honor of those who lost their lives on April 27, 2011. On that day six years ago, 62 tornadoes touched down across Alabama, killing more than 250 people and tearing apart more than 11,000 homes across 43 counties. 9 of those recorded deaths were in Calhoun County and 14 were in St. Clair County.
