The tornadoes destroyed everything in its path: houses, streets and killing at least 23 people. Junior Alec Osorio sympathizes with the victims stating; “that’s horrible. I hope their families can get through this tragedy alright.”

According to Alan Blinder, a writer in New York Times, article, “Tornadoes Kill at Least 23 in Alabama,” Donald Trump tweeted Sunday night sending advice on how “people around and in Alabama should be careful and safe.

”There’s debris laying everywhere…There was a mobile home in the middle of the road at one time. There are personal belongings in the trees,” Chief Byron Prather of the Opelika Fire Department explained the situation in Blinder’s article.

Only deceased victims have been reported in Lee County, Alabama. More than 150 people are involved in the search teams in Lee County with the hope of helping victims.
