Students at Enterprise High School were taking cover in the hallways when the twister hit the building.
"We were sitting there in the halls. All of a sudden, I look out the window, the wind started to pick up and the roof starts to come off and the whole building collapsed on everybody," said Chase Baldwin, a student at Enterprise high school.
"A bunch of people were trapped under cinder blocks and stuff, and people had their heads cut open."

The Georgia Emergency Management Agency is anticipating high winds, hail and tornadoes, and was arranging conference calls Thursday with county emergency management offices to ensure they were prepared, said agency spokesman Ken Davis.
"They're quite concerned," Davis said. "We're staffing up for a long night tonight. Other than that, there's not a whole lot you can do."

ENTERPRISE, Ala. (AP) -- Apparent tornadoes killed at least 18 people in Alabama on Thursday, including 15 at a high school where students were trapped under a collapsed roof, state officials said.
Two died elsewhere in Enterprise and one in rural Millers Ferry, where a separate apparent twister wrecked mobile homes, Alabama Emergency Management Agency spokeswoman Yasamie Richardson said.
"The number could very well increase as the search effort continues through the night," she said.
