ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

The largest outbreak of tornadoes in the country's history began on April 25th and continued through the 28th three years ago, killing nearly 350 people. 

The deadliest twister hit Tuscaloosa, Alabama on April 27th, 2011, and killed 64 people.

Red Cross officials say just because we haven't been hit hard lately, you shouldn't let your guard down.

"Those people have recovered from it but we want people to be aware," said Flint River Red Cross Director Lara Gill. "This time of year that can happen anywhere, so have a plan ready, be ready and be safe."

The outbreak spawned 15 tornadoes in Georgia that killed 15 people.
