A look at Tuscaloosa 11 months after the tornado

Cedar Crest (click to enlarge).

We’re approaching the biggest milestone since Tuscaloosa’s history-making weather catastrophe. Almost a year later, the progress is visible. So are the scars.

After finishing my work for the day, I jumped in the car and drove to a few spots to document the scene 11 months after Tuscaloosa’s defining moment. Here’s a taste of what I saw.

Apartments still needing repair behind 15th Street McDonald's.

Not far away…

Still waiting to rebuild in Forest Lake.

And just a few feet from that …

A shoe in the dried up Forest Lake. It was under water until last week.

One more from Forest Lake …

Forget something?

You can check out a few more photos from the race to sunset this evening in the gallery below. More to come as the anniversary approaches.
