Sixty-two tornadoes made their way through Alabama on that spring day. People in Bibb, Calhoun, Cullman, DeKalb, Elmore, Fayette, Franklin, Hale, Jackson, Jefferson, Lawrence, Limestone Madison, Marion, Marshall, St. Clair, Tallapoosa, Tuscaloosa and Walker counties lost their lives as a result.
“We are hard pressed on every side, but not crushed; perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not abandoned; struck down, but not destroyed.” 2 Corinthians 4:8
It has been amazing to witness the support that has moved Alabama forward in recovery. We honor our partners in this work, who gave sacrificially, creatively, and in some cases, repeatedly. They were numerous and diverse: individuals, including survivors giving to other survivors; foundations; recovery organizations; businesses that raised money or gave a portion of their profits; government agencies and leaders; and national and local volunteers, who shared in the hard work of recovery.
