    I just want to say thank you to the kind man at a Birmingham gas station last night who let my daughter and her companions in as the tornado hit the city. She was traveling to see her fiance graduate from Ft. Benning and was caught in the storm. She had no idea it was coming and stopped for gas. A very kind man unlocked the door and let her in. She called me from the bathroom and I could hear the sirens and wind. How helpless I felt as I heard her cry and scream. Thank you to the man who saved her life.

    I want to thank abc 33 40, james and crew for keeping us totally informed during the worst event of my lifetime. I have grown up with tornados but they usually come at night or with so much rain you cannot see them. These were incredible and deadly. I cried when they went through towns and cried when I saw the people being carried out on doors from Pleasant Grove. Through all of this I have heard of miracles where people were left standing in the closet as the rest of the house was 100% carried away. With disaster comes miracles. With disaster also comes the kind hearts of the Alabama and Mississippi people. Let us take this lesson to stay prepared and be thankful for those around us- everyday! thank you again James.

    I want to say thank you to James Spann and all the weather crew. I live in Randolph county and we are not in your coverage area. I watched ABC3340 all day just watching and waiting to see what was happening. My husband and I were watching live as the tornado hit Tuscaloosa and then Birmingham. My 13 year old boys watched as the tornado came through Birmingham and you could tell that they were awestruck. They knew that this was something BIG. We always leave our mobile home before the storm hits our area, but after watching those storms and how quickly they happened we decided to leave right then to go to safety. Thanks so much for everything you do.

    Thank you for keeping up close updates. My parents and family live in NE- Jacksonville & Websters Chapel (torn up) AL, we are in FL. I kept them updated watching you online, since the power was out for them. My sister says it is unrecognizable. Thank you!

  13. I agree that pictures could be able to tell more than anyone could. No words could describe more about the damage than the pictures above. I hope that people could be able to recover soon from the tornado they experienced in April.
