Hey all,

Many Alabamians are still dealing with the aftermath of last week's tornadoes.

Today, Governor Bentley meet with insurance company executives.  He called the meeting "crucial" as the claims process begins.  

In Tuscaloosa,  where dozens of people died the search continues for even more people missing.  WSFA 12 News reporter Sally Pitts will take a look at the progress in a live report.

 The aftermath of the storm may help get some folks back to work.  More than 250 storm recovery jobs are listed on the state's job link. Learn more tonight at six.

And,  don't forget our Food and Fund drive this Friday at the Chantilly Wal Mart.  From 5am to 7pm we'll be there collecting supplies to help our neighbors in need.  Stop by and help if you can!

Join us for these stories plus weather and sports on WSFA 12 News at 5 and 6. 

See ya then,

Valorie Lawson
