ALBERTA CITY, AL (WBRC)- Tomorrow marks a somber anniversary -- two years since the April 27th tornadoes, when a massive funnel cloud ripped Tuscaloosa apart.
That twister and more than 60 others swept across Alabama that day leaving behind a path of death and destruction running from Tuscaloosa to Birmingham to Cullman and beyond.
The tornado damaged or destroyed nearly every home on Juanita Drive in the Alberta community. The clean up took months and rebuilding continues nearly two years later.
The city of Tuscaloosa partnered with Habitat for Humanity to build homes for tornado survivors. Volunteers with Habitat say they felt called to help here, some more than once.
The work of some volunteers put a roof over Sharon Horn's head and touched her heart.
"I just feel a spark of love in my heart knowing that God has people like this leave their family and come and take time out with strangers," Horn said.
