O wide they could be seen from space But from the terrible destruction emerged everyday heroes neighbors and strangers who rescued each other from hell on earthWith powerful emotion and gripping detail Cross weaves together the heart wrenching stories of several characters including three college students a celebrity weatherman and a team of hard hit rescuers to create a nail biting chronicle in the Tornado Alley of America No it's not Oklahoma or Kansas; it's Alabama where there are tornado fatalities than anywhere in. This subject matter is rarely visited in print to the extent that it deserves How it has changed peoples' lives and physical locations and not just in modern times Kudos to Kim Cross for attempting this particular Superstorm and condition in 2011 However the style of the writing was too high on melodrama and the transitions difficult to jump to maintain continuity in reading Regardless I did enjoy this book and learning about the people who suffered and who responded Having been in 3 tornados during my life and in one 2010losing the entire outside and half the roof MI I cannot tell you how terrifying these storms are And unpredictable to exact movements They skip and they kill in moments Trees become projectiles and I can't think of lovely trees the same Not near to my abode Nor could I easily live in a house without a basement You never forget the green or the sound I don't take Tornado Warnings lightly as many do around me
