I live in virginia with my husband but all my family lives in albertville. My mother lives on hwy 68 about a mile off of hwy 75 approx. 5 miles out of town towards geraldine. She has a little roof damage. All of the trees in the area are down. She says everything looks flat like there were never any trees. Next door my grandmother has a pecan tree through her house. On the road behind them my cousin lost his trailer and my aunts chicken farm is gone. My family says it looks like no buildings were ever there. More families around them have similar problems. A few people are injured. No one has power or water. My mother, sister, and 1 year old nephew were in the closet when the tornado hit. She said the house was shaking and it sounded like a train was plowing down the road. My family is lucky to be alive. I hope everyone else is as lucky. There are cops and army guys patroling to help everyone and stop looting. My father was on a job in another state and is speeding home. Right now there is an 8 pm curfew. Along hwy 75 many people are without a place to live or major house damage. They need eneryones prayers.
