The lost of life and devastation here is heartbreaking. Here is one photo from Dr. Jeff Masters' Wunder Blog.
All of this happened about five miles from my home. It was very frightening to sit huddled in my hallway with my two dogs and cats while listening to the news on the television.
Thankfully, my family is okay and there was no storm damage where I live. Others were not so blessed. Two ladies from work had trees fall on their homes. Three others have not been able to return to work because the streets are blocked with debris. They are without power, telephone and internet service too.
Help is on the way for Alabama. The Red Cross has set up shelters for people who have lost everything. The National Guard is here. Many people have reached out to help their neighbors. The death toll in Alabama is 294 so far. Many people are still unaccounted for.
Please pray for Alabama and for all of the other states that have experienced the worst tornado outbreak in over 40 years. God is able to comfort those who mourn and those who's lives have been changed forever.
Thank God for sparing me and my family. I have been looking around my home and thinking about what it would be like if He had not been watching over me.
I am truly blessed.
