Pratt City, Ala., September 9, 2011 – A sign describing building methods that can withstand 120 mph winds in front of Frank Hardy's home in Pratt City draws attention from passers-by. The house that originally stood on this spot was destroyed on April 27th  when a string of deadly tornadoes struck Alabama. Atlanta's FD Moon & Co. and architect Stan Smith are managing the storm-resistant rebuild, which, as the sign indicates, was recently covered in a feature story in The Birmingham News.
