(WIAT) — A tornado memorial was unveiled at Heritage Park in Cullman on Monday.

It features a bent steel I-beam that was found in the tornado debris on from the storm that tore through the town on April 27, 2011.

A plaque at the memorial reads “Bent, but not broken” and sits at the base of the beam.

“We’re not broken. We have built back. We’re strong here, and we’re going to continue to move on,” Heritage Park manager Shelby Williams said. “It is just an example of what can happen if a tornado hits your town.”

The memorial is lit up at night and also includes an area for seating.
