APR news remembers the 2011 Tornadoes-- "It was so loud, I couldn't hear it anymore..."

Next  Tuesday marks ten years since Alabama's super tornado outbreak of 2011. The National Weather Service recalls 154 tornado warnings across the state that day. The Alabama Public Radio news team will be checking back with many of the people our listeners heard from in the hours following the killer storms. The APR news team's coverage of the storms was recognized with the national Edward R. Murrow Award for Overall Excellence from RTDNA, and back-to-back national Sigma Delta Chi awards from the Society of Professional Journalists. Here is a series of stories the team produced for the 5th anniversary in 2016.

Pat Duggins is news director for Alabama Public Radio.
