    My husband is in Alabama for steel school. The hotel wouldn't let anyone up in their rooms, so they had open bar. My husband is there with a co-worker, who is a pastor. His coworker had four drinks and he does not drink!! Yeah, pretty bad out there...

    Now it's past 200. I'd be drinking, too. At least the ground floor was safe in that bldg.

    I'm praying pretty hard... I have cousins who we cannot get in touch with around Madison... My mom is a bit frantic, B was like an older brother to her growing up.

    I've got relatives that live in Cullman, Alabama - my brothers first wife, his daughter, sister in law, and their two kids. They live in a rural area outside the city limits. None of them have been online since the tornadoes but I'm hoping it's because their power is out. I'm sure I would have heard if something had happened.

    I have friends in the area that missed getting hit by a 1/4 mile, they said power is out all over the place.

    I'm hoping...

    There is a facebook page up, whoever is running it is doing a great job updating the people who are found.

    Worried, and praying. (and I'm glad your friends are OK HaoZi!!!)

    Well, my nephew in Alabama is back on Facebook now and says their power is finally on after being off for several days! I was hoping that was all it was.
