April 27, 2011 is a date everyone in Alabama remembers. Alabama was ravaged by tornadoes. I ended up being a couple of blocks away from one of the tornadoes that hit north of Huntsville. I was able to capture some of the damage done to the area after the tornado went through. I’ll also post a link to the video I made that day where I tried to capture the video. Unfortunately it was rain-wrapped and not visible in the video, but the winds were powerful enough to almost knock me down the sidewalk, forcing me to take cover behind a brick pillar. We spent the next two weeks in darkness, living in the garage with a camp stove and using the car to charge our cell phones.
When the second wave came through, we sat in the car and video-taped the amazing lightning. Some of the pictures are stills from the video (I’ve since upgraded to a much better video camera, so I apologize for the crappy quality of the video stills).
