In 43 BC, warring consuls Antony, Lepidus and Octavian were duking it out with each other over control of Rome following Julius Caesar’s assassination the prior March.

All day long April 27, meteorologists warned that conditions were rife for a severe weather outbreak in the South, and Alabama was expected to be ground zero.
