Looking back, I was sure that I was going to die that November afternoon. Tornado watches in Alabama are as common as eggs are for breakfast. So much so, that I had begun to ignore them altogether. This disregard for Mother Nature's power nearly proved fatal for me and my sister. As we approached a fresh red light on a main thoroughfare through Huntsville, I glanced at the sudden peculiar coloring of the sky. The unusual hue and the stillness of the air gave me a sudden sense of uneasiness. The light changed and we made the left turn that would lead us home. It was after the turn that everything around me seemed to be occurring in slow motion.

    B) flashback

    Explanation:

    Flashbacks are interruptions in a narrative that take us back in time. Such interruptions are used by authors in order to insert past events or information that is important to the story, particularly when it comes to context. In this example, the speaker begins his tale in the present, but afterwards, goes back to the past in order to tell the story of how he almost died that November afternoon.
