Hurricane Ivan's Guardian Angel

There is a Montgomery man some folks are calling their guardian angel. During Hurricane Ivan, Jim Locke called the WSFA 12 Action Line, and volunteered to take folks to area shelters.

At 2:00 A.M. Thursday, Locke's phone rang, and he transported an elderly Montgomery couple to and from Garrett Coliseum. Locke also helped a stranded woman off the side of the road, during the height of the storm.

Locke says he was happy to help, but does not like all the attention. Locke adds, "Driving someone to and from the coliseum is nothing. The really important thing is what folks did. I mean they actually called to get some help."

WSFA 12's General Manager Hoyt Andres guesstimates about 20,000 folks called the action line in the more than 25 hours it was on line.
