Three years ago, on Feb. 24, 2016, a tornado struck the Evergreen community of Appomattox County, leaving a 13-mile path of destruction in its wake. Afterward, one person was found dead and seven were injured. The EF3 tornado -- a category defined as having winds up to 165 mph -- left more than 40 families homeless and caused more than $11 million in damage. These photos contrast scenes immediately after the tornado with the same places a year later.
