Family and friends begin the task of clean-up after a tornado hit the Harvest area around homes that had just been rebuilt after being destroyed by an F5 tornado on April 27, 2011, on Saturday, March 3, 2012, in Athens, Ala. Massive thunderstorms, predicted by forecasters for days, threw off dozens of tornadoes as they raced Friday from the Gulf Coast to the Great Lakes. Twisters crushed blocks of homes, knocked out cellphones and landlines, ripped power lines from broken poles and tossed cars, school buses and tractor-trailers onto roads made impassable by debris.
