Imagine being woken from a deep sleep by wailing storm sirens. Disoriented, you break the darkness by turning on the television and a meteorologist warns that your street is in a direct path of a tornado. In an instant, you realize that you and your family only have a few adrenaline-fueled moments before the storm hits your home. What was it like to be a first responder on the scene knowing you are in the midst of the most harrowing event in a community’s history? And one that no drill or training could ever truly prepare you for. How does a community attempt to rebuild and heal after being struck by such a horrific tragedy?

Sleeping thru the Storm...ME ;)

The podcaster chosen was amazing....what a deep deep Twilight Zone voice, I was instantly mesmerized and recognized it as Montgomery’s own Greg Leader.

Story was spot on - with the exception of this..... “imagine waking up on Masters Sunday and not being able to watch because a Tornado has ravaged the ‘hood and DirecTV had not been invented yet !”

Faithfully ,

proud

So proud of Montgomery for dedicating resources to documenting the roles of the first responders and other city officials. Thanks also to the residents for participating!!
