Tornado cleanup in Bessemer

Posted: Updated:

 

It's been more than month since a powerful tornado that ripped through Bessemer but there are still scattered reminders of the damaging storm.  There are a lot of trees that are down.
Today neighbors came out with equipment and chainsaws.  There were dozens of 
volunteers who turned out on Saturday to join in on the city's cleanup effort. 
The process was simple, cut down trees, drag debris to the streets and then a 
company that the city had contraced with, would  pick up the rest.
Bessemer was one of the hardest hit areas when the recent round of storms and tornadoes rolled through in April.
