This post is a collection of videos and links about the storms, tornados and their effects from across the South, especially Alabama (since it was hit hardest). But more, it’s a call to pray and help with disaster relief for those in need.
Many, many people are still reeling from the vicious storms that swept through and wreaked havoc this week in the southeastern United States. Hundreds of lives were lost, hundreds more injured, and others still unaccounted for.
Would you join me in praying for those who have been affected, lost loved ones, lost homes or property, and are trying to pick up the pieces in the aftermath?
