Views Of Tornado Damage Across Southeast U.S. (Videos)

Over the past few days, tornadoes and thunderstorms carved a trail of destruction across the southern United States, killing over 220 people in one of the country’s worst weather disasters in years.

Damage from the storms in Alabama “surpassed what was seen after hurricanes Dennis or Frederick and could exceed what the area saw after hurricanes Katrina or Ivan.”

These videos provide a first-hand view of the destruction caused by these storms.

If you’re on Facebook, the Chattanooga Times Free Press has posted an aerial video of damage in the Tennessee Valley.

Many of us have friends or family that live in the South, and our hearts and prayers go out to those whose lives have been uprooted and their missing loved ones.

wow :( we live in Alabama and we had severe thunderstorms but no tornadoes touched down near hour home. We were very lucky.
A few people I work with had some damage to their property but as far as I know, no one in my community was injured, killed or sustained heavy damages.

It's very sad.. we haven't recovered from the tornadoes of April 2011.
