Pratt City holding concert to commemorate tornado anniversary


PRATT CITY, Ala. (WIAT) — Sunday marks the three year anniversary of the April 27 tornadoes.

The storm claimed the 254 lives across the state. The path of destruction stretched from Tuscaloosa through Birmingham and beyond, demolishing homes, businesses and entire communities.

Pratt City took a direct hit that day.

Now, residents of the community are beaming with pride over the new library and fire station.

A concert is planned for Saturday as a part of Birmingham’s anniversary commemoration for Pratt City.

The concert is free.

The day-long commemoration runs from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m.

You can tour the new library, which has a storm shelter inside, and take part in various workshops.
