MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) -

Last week marked an historic week of severe weather and tragic loss of property and life in Alabama. Currently there are a reported 200+ deaths in Alabama attributed to the violent storms and tornadoes.

Our hearts go out to all that have been affected by the horrific weather events thus far in 2011. It is at these times the fragility of life and the perspective on those things that we should hold most dear come clearly into focus.

No one deserves to suffer such loss, but when unimaginable events like this take place agencies such as the American Red Cross, local blood banks or the Alabama Emergency Management Agency are ready to help. Contact these agencies today if you are in need of assistance or want to support their efforts to help our fellow Alabamians in need.

The people of Alabama are strong and resilient. Now is the time we need to draw upon this resiliency as we pull together for our friends, family and neighbors in their time of need.

You will all be in our prayers and we will get through this.

We welcome your feedback.
