2011 Alabama Tornado Relief

Text Box: The storm moved on toward Birmingham. As of 6 p.m, over 250,000 residents in the Birmingham area and hundreds of thousands more across the region had lost power, according to  Alabama Power. ABC 33/40 reported that Birmingham airport has evacuated all passengers from concourses and flights are delayed, but no major damage has been reported.

Hours after a tornado devastated Tuscaloosa, Mayor Walt Maddox couldn't believe what he was looking at — whole stretches of his city just "wiped off the map."

Tornadoes are generated when these different air masses come into contact, they are most common in the spring, when the weather is transitioning from cold on the northern Plains to hot on the Gulf Coast. The U.S. has by far the lion’s share of the world’s tornadoes due to its unique geography: the Rocky Mountains on the west funneling and blocking air masses, the warm Gulf air moving up the south and cold air from Canada to the north.

On May 5, 2011, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration posted preliminary statistics estimating that the deadly storms that descended on America's Southern states from 8 a.m. EDT April 25th to 8 a.m. April 28, 2011 produced a total of 201 tornadoes in Mississippi, Alabama, Tennessee, Georgia and Virginia. The storms were responsible for 309 confirmed fatalities, though the search continues for missing family members as survivors work together in their efforts toward recovery.
Mission: Transport donated supplies from warehouses to distribution centers. From the distribution center community members in need will receive much needed supplies.

Todd Grube is in Tuscaloosa supporting the community and other Non Profits with relief activities. Below is some quotes from local resident:
"I'm in my car at corner on McFarland. Milo's Hamburgers isn't there anymore," said Tuscaloosa resident Phil Owen. "Hobby Lobby is the only thing still standing at Woods Square Shopping Center. Big Lots, Full Moon Barbecue. Piles of garbage where those places were. Shell gas station across the street, all that's standing is the frame of the store."
