TUSCALOOSA, AL (WBRC) -
The corner of Tuscaloosa's Hackberry Lane and 15th Street is slowly being re-built. Behind the devastation of 2011 came a miracle- and as Liv Nixon eyes her 100th birthday come December, she says there's only one reason she's with us.
"I think the only thing that did it was the good Lord... I really do," Nixon said.
As the April 27 tornado approached, Liv Nixon didn't pay it much attention- you see, the first tornado she survived came in the 1930's. Her mom ushered her underground into the family pit.
"I got tired of that as a child, so I said, 'I'm not going to do that,'" she said.
When I arrived here at 2019 Hackberry Lane just after the tornado struck, I found Liv Nixon being escorted from the scene- and I soon found out she was not only very spry, but also very opinionated.
Here's a portion of the piece I did last April:
It was late on Wednesday afternoon and a woman named Liv Nixon decided to read the paper and relax. But this wasn't any ordinary woman- this was Liv Nixon:
"A year from December I'll be a hundred year sold. What do I think of that? I'm thinking of making it to a hundred- what'ya know!" Nixon said.
