April 27, 2011, was a historic day across the southeast, as hundreds of violent, long-track tornadoes took the lives of hundreds. Every Alabamian was impacted by this Super Outbreak in some way.
Today, we remember the impact of every tornado as families are without their loved ones. Some of the lives lost were children. Meteorologists and the entire weather enterprise are left scarred as they feel like there was more they could have done.
Below is a track of all the tornadoes that went across the state.
