 Curry Tornado

National Weather Service
The National Weather Service
Reported at least 14 tornadoes touched
down in northwest and central Alabama Sunday.
At least 52 people suffered injuries ranging from abrasions
to broken bones, hospital officials said.

The first one began in Fayette County and tore through Walker County before ending in Winston County, with a track one-half to three-quarters of a mile wide, estimated winds from 125 mph to 150 mph, covering 50 to 70 miles.

Thanks to Channel 33/40 and their weather team. Their live continuous tornado coverage on Nov. 10 2002 and the warning to take cover saved lives, in the Walker and Winston County areas.

where Kids huddle
In a storm cellar that didn't have a door,
they could only watch as the storm ripped through their home.
All of them are lucky to be alive,
and they were very happy to go home with their dad that night
