After a violent tornado, Dawn South uses CrossFit training to aid stranded relatives.
On April 27, 2011, one of the nation’s worst natural disasters struck Alabama. Over 38 tornadoes tore through my state, with a powerful EF4 going right through the city where my in-laws lived.
We had no idea how bad it was until the next morning. On Facebook, my cousin was sending out messages:
“We are OK, but people are trapped here in Pleasant Grove.”
“No rescue, no news, nobody knows we’ve been hit!”
“No water, no way out.”
