HACKLEBURG, AL (WAFF) -

Governor Robert Bentley stopped in Hackleburg Wednesday to announce some much needed relief for towns hit hardest by the April 27th tornados.

It's been nearly two years since the tornados devastated North Alabama, but many areas are still recovering. Homes, businesses and entire communities were destroyed in towns like Hackleburg, Phil Campbell, Union Grove and Rainsville.

Bentley, along with several other state and local leaders, announced $15.7 million of long term disaster relief funding will be awarded to nine communities in North and West Alabama.

DeKalb County will receive $950,000, Franklin County will receive $125,000 and Hackleburg will receive money to help revitalize downtown.

Funds were also awarded to Cordova, Marion County, Moulton, Phil Campbell, Tuscaloosa city and Tuscaloosa County.
