No Fatalities in Pickens County Storms but Donations Needed in Recovery

Last night, I watched the news in awe as the tornadoes crossed Mississippi and Alabama.  It was particularly striking for me because the area in Aliceville that was hit is the community where my family lives, close to where we lived when we first moved to Alabama.
