Tornado damage
Hurricane Ivan (2004) caused a multi-day outbreak of 127 tornadoes (in 9 different states), with the bulk of the tornadoes on 17 September in the mid-Atlantic region, some two days after Ivan's landfall in Alabama. At least 7 people were killed and 17 injured by these tornadoes. Damage shown here is from the Stokesdale, NC, tornado that was produced during the passage of the remnants of Hurricane Ivan on Friday, September 17, 2004.
