Normally you wouldn’t think of Alabama as being considered “Tornado Alley” as I have always heard that description being attributed to Texas/Oklahoma areas. However, Wednesday afternoon multiple tornadoes ripped through our state, killing over 150 people at last count.
Sitting in our den late yesterday, we watched live coverage of this killer tornado as it bore down on Tuscaloosa, Alabama, one of the hardest hit cities.
The daughter of one of my friends attends the University of Alabama….she was only a couple of miles from one of the streets totally destroyed but thankfully is okay.
There are several small towns completely destroyed.
This same tornado bore down on Birmingham, where my son and his family live. I immediately called him and they were all at home, safe & sound, thank goodness.
I also understand there was quite a bit of damage to the Lake Martin area where my sister and I are planning on spending the weekend at her lake house.
Please say a prayer for everyone who has lost loved ones or everything they have worked for.
