Riley in Atmore for hurricane relief

ATMORE, Ala. (AP)_Gov. Bob Riley and Alabama Emergency Management Agency Director Bruce Baughman meet this morning with officials in Atmore on Hurricane Dennis relief and recovery efforts.

Meanwhile, utility crews have been working since Sunday to restore power to the city in Escambia County.

The Oklahoma Baptist Men also are in the city working with the Red Cross at the Atmore First Baptist Church to make sure families have a hot meal.

The volunteers are preparing enough food for more than one thousand people everyday until power is restored to homes and businesses.

Atmore took a devastating hit from Hurricane Ivan in September, bringing a similar relief effort.
