One year later … revisit three neighborhoods for before/after looks at tornado aftermath

Today, we look back. One year after the state of Alabama changed forever, let’s update the progress in three Tuscaloosa neighborhoods 12 months after the April 27, 2011 tornado killed 53 in the city.

First, here’s a look at Fifth Avenue in Holt. It’s the neighborhood I first visited three days after the storm to chronicle the efforts of Tide athletes helping with recovery efforts.
