On Wednesday evening, a series of storms swept throughout the southern states, hitting Alabama especially hard. Authorities estimate that as many as 231 people have been killed in 6 states, making this one of the most devastating tornado outbreaks in the country’s history.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all who are affected by this devastation, as well as the first responders who are working around the clock to help victims and start the cleanup.
