Tornado Stricken :: Warrior and Fultondale


On Wednesday morning, April 27, I got a call from my tenants that the house they rent from me had been damaged by straight-line winds that ripped through Warrior around 6am that morning. The winds are thought to have exceeded 90-100mph.

I arrived at the house a few minutes later to discover that nearly every tree on the block and been uprooted, and most had landed on a home. One was lying somewhat on my house and another on the detached garage, which received substantially more damage than the house.

As bad as this appeared to be, worse storms were yet to come.


The tornado that tracked for more than a hundred miles from Tuscaloosa through Hueytown, Pleasant Grove, Pratt City, and east Birmingham, also hit Fultondale. It struck about one mile from our home. I took the opportunity today to photograph the damage and the beginnings of cleanup efforts.
