Please pray for all the Alabamians that have lost loved ones or have lost everything in yesterday's deadly tornadoes. It is such a sad time for our area. We live about 20 miles from where the Birmingham tornado went through and destroyed complete communities and lives. So far I am hearing a death toll of 280 people state wide. What makes me mad is that right after the storms, people went into these communities and started stealing ( looting) The rescue people were trying to find people trapped and these looters were already stealing. Makes me so mad. I do know that the rescue workers are still finding people today that have been trapped all night. Some ok and some with injuries. They now have the help of the National Guard to help patrol these areas. It makes me sick.. The people interviewed last night on tv were trying to get into their neighborhoods to check on loved ones missing and the police would not let them in.. But somehow... Looters can get in.... Just please keep them in your prayers. It will be a long time till their lives can get back to any kind of normal. Whole cities and neighborhoods have been destroyed. The biggest tornado started in Mississippi, came into Alabama, and was still on the ground into the state of Georgia. Now I hear that my friends along the east coast are battling tornadoes today. Our weather crews were wonderful during these tornadoes and the people did as they were instructed to do. These storms were just to powerful. So.. please do not take tornadoes lightly. Thank you for all my friends that have contacted me through email checking on us! Your friendship is so appreciated and I am so thankful to have friends that care so much. Thank you all.
