Violent storms and tornadoes hit southern U.S. and leaving more than 270 people dead, thousand injured and hundreds of thousands without power. The epic storms destroyed neighbourhoods and towns with majority of deaths in Alabama. Other states affected are Georgia, Virginia and Arkansas. It was an amazing scene to those who survived and called the storms as “silent monster” due to its magnitude and severity.
Authorities considered the event as the most devastating tornado outbreak in the country’s history. The destruction covered an estimated 5 to 7 miles long and a mile wide. Residents in the area compared the surge of the storms to “an atomic bomb that went off in a straight line”.
With more reported injuries and devastation in the affected areas, the federal government is doing their best to help in the recovery including search and rescue support.
