Six months ago, a series of deadly tornadoes ripped across the state of Alabama.
On April 27th, dozens of the killer storms roared through communities like Cullman, Hackleberg, Tuscaloosa and even Birmingham.
WYMT'S Kendall Downing and Brandon Robinson were in some of the hard hit communities just days after the twisters hit, following local relief groups from Eastern Kentucky delivering supplies.
Brandon talked to veteran Birmingham meteorologist James Spann not too long after the 27th about what happened that April day.
"I never thought I'd see this kind of day on my watch. I'm old enough to remember the super outbreak of 1974, until this, that was the tornado outbreak on record for the country. I thought that with the warning system we have now that we would never have that kind of loss of life but I was blown away, it took my breath away" Spann, the Chief Meteorologist at WBMA TV, told Mountain News in an interview back in May.
Nearly 350 people in Alabama were killed in several rounds of tornadoes.
