People and technology aren't always to blame for disasters - sometimes Mother Nature does some damage herself. Tropical Storm Barry gave the Southeast quite a scare last week. But Barry died down without bringing much of the severe weather - including tornados - that residents of Alabama and the Florida Panhandle feared. It was eight years ago this month that some communities in Central Virginia were crushed by a twister. In today's Virginia Newsreel, we revisit Historic Petersburg and Colonial Heights as they marked the one - year anniversary of the tornado that killed several - and injured dozens more. Here's part of former News 7 reporter Richard Real's (REE-all) report, as it aired in 1994.

A few miles away in Historic Petersburg, the scene was equally bizarre; the core of the city's long- struggle toward revitalization-- it's Old Towne section-- was left a mess, as well.
Roofs caved in or just plain gone.
Life's work scattered like confetti.
On Pocahontas Island-- site of the oldest African- American community in Virginia-- the wreckage was grimly similar; ninety percent of the modest homes on the tiny island were damaged or destroyed.
Today-- the historic church remains a battered shell, initial damage estimates of ten- MILLION dollars proved naive.
But others have rebuilt their lives and their homes.
Petersburg is still digging out.
The historic Southside Station, gem of the city's rebirth effort, still has its rough edges.
Some have recovered-- some have not, but from the rubble has come something other places lack: a sense of community.

Largely independent of the state budget debacle, the Poe Museum has launched a new effort to raise private funds and expand its educational mission at a time other Virginia museums are being forced to cut back.
The tiny building is the oldest structure still standing in the original city.
It was never home to Poe -- but he walked in the garden, and lived and worked nearby.
An eighth grade teacher from California happened onto the museum, and found it the most compelling tourist attraction in the city.

The kids like the lock of hair.
A daguerrotype is considered the best likeness of the man in existence.
But while a trip to the museum may clear up the myths, it's the aura of mystery that will stay in your memory.

In the heart of Margaritaville, tourists and residents alike are crying FOWL.
That's because Key West, normally a place vacationers love to flock to, has become a haven for chickens.
Bobby Harley has more.

((In Key West these days, no one is asking WHY the chicken crossed the road...

NAT SOT - (truck honking at family of chickens crossing the road)


just why there are so MANY them on the road, in yards, even scratching around in restaurants at the feet of unsuspecting tourists.

(SOT - ANN JONES/RICHMOND, VA) I didn't expect to find live chickens

just walking around, I think it's kind of neat.
But in a town known for its colorful characters THESE critters have worn out their welcome.

(NATS - tour tram guide voice - ) On the right, here comes a rooster.


Inexplicably, the usual few HUNDRED wild chickens here have ballooned to a few THOUSAND, enough to have even the PRESIDENT of the Florida Keys AUDUBON Society crying foul.

(SOT - DR. MARK WHITESIDE/KEY WEST PHYSICIAN) There are some public

health issues with too many chickens, they're known to carry a number of diseases, bacterias, viruses that could be a risk to certain patients with chronic illnesses.

In fact, there are SO many of them --- local officials blame chicken

droppings for polluting, even closing a few beaches.

(OC/BH/KEY WEST) So what do you do with all these chickens in places

people don't want them? The city of Key West has decided to treat them just like any other offender they're all going to the county jail.
But only in a TEMPORARY holding pen, until they're shipped to a bird sanctuary UNLESS, of course, Katha Sheehan and her prized rooster find them first.

(NATS - she's talking to the rooster) Call 'em over


The owner of a business called the Chicken Store Sheehan's a skilled chicken catcher

(NATS) chicken getting caught


And adamantly AGAINST the chicken round-up.

(SOT - KATHA SHEEHAN/THE CHICKEN STORE) I would like to see a rooster

park established here, that's what I'd like to see, I think there should be a place you can go to hang out with the roosters.
While THAT'S not going to happen ... Key Westers ARE being more sensitive to their feathered friends: no chicken was served at the city barbecue this year and city officials say the solution is to let the birds live, not to make them lunch.

(SOT - JOHN JONES/KEY WEST ASST. CITY MANAGER) Old time Key Westers

understand chickens and they don't care if the rooster starts crowing too much, he was soup you know, the next weekend.
Instead, the island's current public enemy number one (mug shot of chicken) will just be crowing somewhere else. BH, CBS News, Key West.))
