Spring Tornadoes Five Years Later

John Nero Jr., left, 58, and Pam Nero, 59, both of Tuscaloosa, laugh together at the bottom of their new home's steps during an interview from the Associated Press, Tuesday, April 19, 2016, in Tuscaloosa, Ala. John and Pam talk about how a tornado on April 27, 2011, destroyed their home. "The stress of the storms caused Pam to have a heart attack and a stroke a few months after the tornado according to a doctor," John says. Fifty-three people were killed five years ago in Tuscaloosa and 253 people were killed when 62 tornadoes struck the state on April 27, 2011. Pam says they feared for their lives during the tornado and the she is still shaken up but John seems better then before, this year marks the fifth year anniversary of the tornados, and construction is still underway in several surrounding areas.
