Trump to Visit Survivors of Deadly Alabama Tornadoes

Alabama Tornado Kills At Least 22, More Still Missing

Some of the strongest storms could rumble across Fort Worth and Tarrant County while people are still sleeping sometime after 3 a.m.

The National Weather Service in Birmingham confirmed that four tornadoes hit central Alabama on Sunday.

Tornadoes were also reported in Walton County and Cairo in northern Florida. A third tornado, classified as at least an EF1, traveled from Macon County into Lee County.

The area where the tornado struck is generally Trump country, as he carried about 60 percent of the Lee County vote in 2016, and blue Trump flags flying outside homes are a frequent sight in Beauregard.

What Is an EF4 Tornado?

Tornadoes on the EF scale range from zero to five, which represents estimated wind speeds, measured in three-second gusts, based on damage. The weather service said it remained on the ground for an hour and 16 minutes, crossing the Chattahoochee River into western Georgia along a path stretching roughly 70 miles (112 kilometers).

A volunteer from Church of Highlands uses a chainsaw to remove downed trees caused by a tornado March 5, 2019 in Smiths Station, Alabama.

Their grandparents, 89-year-old Jimmy Jones and 83-year-old Mary Louise Jones, were killed in their home on a two-lane road where most everyone shares family ties.

On Sunday, Troy Bell saw the tornado and quickly gathered his family to huddle in the bathtub.

David Dean texted a friend that the storm was coming. He said his office is making sure that survivors and people who want to help are not scammed. "Their whole families are dead". I feel so bad for them.

A "super outbreak" of tornadoes across a swathe of the U.S. in April 2011 killed more than 300 people.

Ninety people were injured in the Beauregard area, authorities said.

At least 23 people were killed in Alabama on Sunday in the deadliest tornado day since 2013. But Sheriff Jay Jones said the list of missing people had shrunk from dozens to just seven or eight.

Lee County Coroner Bill Harris said the dead included nearly entire families and at least three children, ages 6, 9 and 10. "Some of these families have lost practically nearly the entire family".

On Tuesday, President Trump approved Gov. Kay Ivey's request for an expedited major disaster declaration for Lee County, Alabama Emergency Management Agency Director Brian Hastings said.

Trump, whose response to the 2017 hurricane in Puerto Rico was widely panned, drew criticism earlier this week for seemingly playing politics with disaster aid by tweeting that "FEMA has been told directly by me to give the A Plus treatment to the Great State of Alabama and the wonderful people who have been so devastated".

The tornado packed winds estimated at 170 mph (274 kph) and chewed a path of destruction up to nine-tenths of a mile (1.4 kilometers) wide in Alabama for almost 27 miles (43 kilometers), the weather service said Tuesday after its crews surveyed the impact. The storm killed 40 people.
