Midwestern Storms Rattle Survivors of Alabama Twisters
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Survivors of the twisters that devastated much of Alabama say they're praying for victims of the tornadoes that killed scores across the Midwest.
Nerves remain raw from the storms that ravaged Alabama and much of the South on April 27, killing more than 300 people and damaging thousands of homes and businesses. So news of the devastation in Joplin, Mo., hit hard for people still repairing their homes or mourning the loss of friends and relatives.
In Tuscaloosa, retired Marine Willie Walker says people are praying for the Midwest. He says Alabama residents know what people are going through in places like Missouri. Sherman James says his heart goes out to victims of the latest severe weather to hit the nation.
