Remembering the Enterprise Tornado of 2008
--On this date in 2008, a tornado touched down in Enterprise, Alabama.
The twister significantly damaged the town's civic center by peeling
off its roof and blowing out windows. Car windows were also blown out
with trees downed throughout the town. This tornado recalled memories
of a tornado that infamously hit the town high school in early March
2007 and killed eight students.
