On Sunday a powerful storm hit Alabama.

The storm produced a possible tornado that damaged the area.

This is a disaster.

At least 2 people were killed and about 100 people were injured.

It happened hours after tornadoes struck portions of Arkansas.

The storm cut down trees and power lines and damaged houses.

By Monday, almost 8,000 people across Arkansas were still without power.

A tornado is a big huge wind that is shaped like a torn and brings things away.

If you’re in a car driving and there’s a tornado some where around you, get out of your car.

Search for a drain and lie flat facing down and put your arms above your head.

Do not drive under any fly-over or highway.

In May 2011, more than 100 people were killed after a powerful tornado hit Joplin.

The underground garage housed a trailer that the Sims said was their storm shelter. Unfortunately, Bobby Sims died in the storm and his wife Jan is currently hospitalized from injuries she sustained. The couple didn't make it to their storm shelter. (AP Photo/The Birmingham News, Jeff Roberts) MAGS OUT
