HARVEST, AL (WAFF) -

It's fresh misery for some North Alabama tornado victims.

After Friday's tornado outbreak, some homeowners along Railroad Bed Road and Yarbrough Road in Madison County got hit a second time in less than a year.

Judy Hodges of Harvest is among these homeowners affected by both tornado storms. Her entire roof was ripped off and the front door is now a gaping hole.

"This time, the house really took a licking," said Hodges.

Last April, a tornado took out the front half of her home. Friday, another hit in the same place and shifted the entire home off its foundation.
 
The Hodges home had been in the family since 1942. "We just finished rebuilding and the thought of rebuilding for a second time is tough to take," mentioned Hodges.

"Just the thought of losing everything again; it's so many memories. You can't do anything but cry. Everything is gone," added Hodges.

Hodges, her husband, and 14 other neighbors ran to her storm shelter as a tornado tore up everything in its path.

Now starts the long process she and so many other residents will take on again: rebuilding their home.
