Having experienced hurricanes before, Wayne Johnson knew all about the damage a storm could leave behind.
Still, he said he wasn't prepared for what he saw when he drove into Birmingham, Ala. on Friday, May 6.
"I have never seen anything like that before. It was like a war zone."
Houses were reduced to rubble. Cars were flipped over like toys. Massive trees were snapped in half like twigs.
"It's hard to describe in words," Johnson said.
