Jackson Co. Alabama Storm Damage 02.08
The above photos were taken after a line of thunderstorms and tornadoes swept across the mid and southern sections of the United States last week, killing more than 50 people, injuring scores of others, destroying dozens of homes and buildings and damaging hundreds. The town of Pisgah, Alabama, where I graduated from high school, as well as the neighboring town of Rosalie (where the photos are from), and Flat Rock (where I live), were hit by an F4 tornado and a beloved member of the community lost her life. Many families have been displaced, several people are still in the hospital, and there are families who have lost everything and have no insurance. The Red Cross has been there from the beginning, helping in every way they can and making a huge difference in the lives of these two towns.
