I got a text from my mom early this morning saying they had a tornado. I thought it was a joke, because this IS January, right?!? Unfortunately it wasn't a joke.
Luckily they had mild damage compared to other places even as close as 1/2mi away. There are roughly 35,000 without power and a lot of people are even without homes. My mom lives in Jefferson County which is where the worst of this seemed to occur.
Currently the death toll is at 2, and many injuries have been reported.
Please keep my family and all of the other families in Alabama in your thoughts and prayers today and the weeks to come as they rebuild.
