Alabama and South Struggle After Powerhouse Tornadoes Slams region; Death Toll at 348

Survivors and first responders are coming  to grips with immense destruction and devastation in Alabama and the south. From AP via My Way News:

It was bad enough that a tornado obliterated Derrick Keef’s house. Worse still was the heartbreaking scavenger hunt for his most priceless possessions strewn across the devastated neighborhood.

His guns were in the ruins of a neighbor’s home. A Christmas heirloom shared space in a ditch with broken glass and jagged nails. And his 7-year-old son’s bike – one of the few toys he could salvage – was pinned under a car a block away.

“I’ve been going from lot to lot finding stuff,” he said as he rifled through debris in Concord, Ala., in search of a family photo album. “It’s like CSI.”

As crews combed the remains of houses and neighborhoods pulverized by the nation’s deadliest tornado outbreak in nearly four decades, survivors were left trying to figure out how to put their lives back together.

At least 340 killed across six states in Wednesday’s outbreak Over 240 were killed in Alabama alone.

The Federal Government are send money and resources to rebuild.

Read it all. Keep the in your thoughts and Prayers.
