Aerial photos show aftermath of ‘surreal’ Alabama tornado that killed a 14-year-old boy and left at least 30 injured after it demolished dozens of homes with terrified families trapped in basements

Aerial photos show the destruction and debris from an Alabama tornado that ripped off roofs and destroyed homes while leaving one dead and 30 injured on Monday.

The shocking pictures show heaps of mangled metal and wooden debris littered across the Darlene Estates neighborhood in Fultondale – just north of Birmingham.

Officials said that a 14-year-old boy who was sheltering in his basement died when a tornado blew a tree onto the home and killed him, police said on Tuesday.

Several of his family members were critically injured when the home collapsed and trapped them in the basement.

At least 30 other people were injured as the tornado rampaged through the community, which was severely harmed by a much larger tornado a decade ago.
