Yesterday I drove south into Franklin County to check on some friends who live near the town of Phil Campbell, Alabama. Phil Campbell was one of many towns and cities across the South devastated by Wednesday’s tornados.

Their house was undamaged, but they weren’t home. I left them a note. On my way home I shot a brief video (there’s no sound) of the tornado’s path. I was two or three miles east of Phil Campbell,
where 26 people were killed Wednesday.
