"On April 27, 2011, a storm system struck Alabama causing widespread damage and claiming the lives of 252 people. Three successive waves of tornadoes wreaked havoc on rural and urban communities alike, including two of the most powerful tornadoes ever recorded in Alabama. The American Red Cross estimated that the storms destroyed 23,553 homes and caused $1.1 billion in property damage. The April storms compounded Alabama's existing housing shortage."
