ADAMSVILLE, AL (WBRC) -

Nearly 30 volunteers from Home Depot spent the day in Adamsville cleaning up from the storms.

There are still many trees down across the city. Van Cruce has lived in his now damaged home for 40 years. He says he's never seen anything like this in the past.

"Can't describe it," he said. "It's tore up."

Volunteers arrived with chainsaws to clear away some of those trees and limbs.

"One of our values as a company is to give back," Neal Harris with The Home Depot, said. "We heard that Adamsville had not had much help. We decided to get together and help today."

Some of the volunteers came from Etowah and Tuscaloosa counties.

"We are trying to help with debris, trees so they can get back into their homes and see what they can salvage. To move on with their life," Harris said.

Church organizations have also lent a hand. Cruce says they all have been a welcome sight.

"They have been nice coming by, bringing in food to eat. Everybody has been good," Cruce said.

Mayor Pam Palmer says that anyone interested in volunteering can meet Friday, May 9 at the Senior Center at 419 Spring Street or call 674-1788 for more information.
