For full disclosure, I lived through the tornado and am familiar with nearly every person or place Anderson wrote about. I knew Harrison, consider Tinker a friend and still get a gut-wrenching feeling whenever one of those regular reminders occurs.

Uncredited/Associated Press Former Alabama long-snapper Carson TInker is now with the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Saban changed as a person as well, though, which former Sports Illustrated writer Lars Anderson, who composed the tornado cover story that had Javier Arenas on the front of the May 23, 2011 issue, writes at length about in his upcoming book, The Storm and the Tide (due out Aug. 12).
Tinker, of course, has moved on and is now with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but a handful of his tornado teammates remain.
In those nearly 20 minutes, the tornado traveled 12.75 miles, traveling across the western and central portions of the county.
Skies turned dark across the D.C. area on June 21, 2016 as severe weather and heavy rain moved through the region.

Elliott says the tornado caused mainly tree damage and very little structural damage.
After receiving an advance copy of Anderson’s book, I found the first 100 pages extremely difficult to read but can honestly say he nailed it.

“Rather than put self-imposed limitations on what we can do, that made us feel like there’s more out there for us to be able to do. We’re going to continue to support the state of Alabama and the young people in the state, try to create some opportunities for them in the various ways.”
The tornado continued toward the southeast, passing through the areas of Glenwood and Glenelg, before lifting just before Ellicott City in the vicinity of Manor Lane and Carroll Mill Road.

“Anything more than 10 minutes, especially for around here, is a fairly long time for a tornado to last,” Elliott said.
Beforehand, Alabama had only won national titles in football and gymnastics, but everything changed after the tornado, even Nick Saban.
In it, he chronicles what happened that day, how Saban and the Crimson Tide reacted and realized how they were playing for a lot more than themselves. It also follows former Alabama long snapper Carson Tinker and the families of his then-girlfriend, Ashley Harrison, and Loryn Brown, the daughter of a former Crimson Tide player.
According to the NWS, the initial touchdown occurred near the intersection of Old Annapolis Road and St. Michaels Road, just southwest of Lisbon. Properties there sustained tree damage with multiple trees snapped, uprooted and topped in multiple directions. A large garage had its doors bowed by the wind and small objects were lifted, the NWS says.
“Most of our tornadoes here are quick spinups, so it is rare for it to have a somewhat long track in terms of 10 miles or so,” Elliott said. “It’s not something that happens very often.”

Perhaps that’s part of the recovery process as well.
Part of me wants to suggest that everyone else on the roster should be given a copy of Anderson and Tinker’s books, while the rest of me feels otherwise, that hopefully they’ll never have a clue to what it’s like to go through something so horrific.

It was a perfect tale of triumph over tragedy, followed by the women’s golf and softball teams winning titles and the reigning national champion gymnastics team successfully defending its own. Men’s golf lost in the NCAA finals but won the next two titles, and football won another championship in 2012.
The tornado had winds of up to 80 mph with a path width of 500 yards.
People looked to him after the storm if for no other reason than simple inspiration, and the leader of the nation’s most successful football program became a true leader of the community. It's something those outside of Tuscaloosa will never fully understand, but by the way he responded and told his players to forget football and help others, Saban would be beloved here even without the championships.
Some of them were University of Alabama athletes, including members of the football team who aided in the physical recovery and then helped as much emotionally by winning the national championship.
Maybe the reminder comes while driving down the road and suddenly seeing a gap that has yet to be rebuilt. Perhaps it’s an awful smell or when a pet hides in terror from a small storm passing through the area.
Seven other county school buildings — Glenelg High School, Marriotts Ridge High School, West Friendship Elementary School, Manor Woods Elementary School, Triadelphia Ridge Elementary School, Swansfield Elementary School and Rockburn Elementary School — were also without power, the school system says, and camps at locations without power were canceled.
That’s it, 11 players, and there’s no more talk about how they have to win to help others get over the tragedy. They can finally be free of that burden, although like with Saban they’ll never be quite the same.
The surface observation plot depicts the following. Temperature 79°F, Dewpoint 63°F, Sea Level Pressure 1005.8mB*, KCSM Clinton-Sherman, OK, Wind south southeasterly at 20 kts. Each long flag is 10 kts, a short flag is 5 kts. Therefore, 25 kts would be two long and one short flag. Note: A grayed out observation indicates the latest avaialble observation is old!

Of the early enrollees in 2011, linebacker Trey DePriest is the lone holdover.
The Howard County Public School System says in a statement that there will be no summer school at Howard High School on Wednesday due to a power outage. Classes at Oakland Mills High School and the Applications and Research Lab will open on time.
One of the ways the coach and his wife Terry helped was to have their Nick’s Kids Foundation team up with Habitat for Humanity to rebuild a neighborhood with the 15-for-15 initiative, a house for each championship that Alabama claims.
